The PROC HPSUMMARY statement invokes the procedure. The HPSUMMARY procedure computes descriptive statistics for variables across all observations or within groups of observations.
Table 10.1 summarizes the available options in the PROC HPSUMMARY statement by function. The options are then described fully in alphabetical order in the section Optional Arguments. For information about the statistickeywords, see the section Statistic Keywords.
