The UNIVARIATE Procedure |

Summarizing a Data Distribution |

Figure 4.1 shows a table of basic summary measures and a table of extreme observations for the loan-to-value ratios of 5,840 home mortgages. The ratios are saved as values of the variable LoanToValueRatio in a data set named HomeLoans. The following statements request a univariate analysis:

ods select BasicMeasures ExtremeObs; proc univariate data=HomeLoans; var LoanToValueRatio; run;

The ODS SELECT statement restricts the default output to the tables for basic statistical measures and extreme observations.

Basic Statistical Measures | |||
---|---|---|---|

Location | Variability | ||

Mean | 0.292512 | Std Deviation | 0.16476 |

Median | 0.248050 | Variance | 0.02715 |

Mode | 0.250000 | Range | 1.24780 |

Interquartile Range | 0.16419 |

The tables in Figure 4.1 show, in particular, that the average ratio is 0.2925 and the minimum and maximum ratios are 0.06518 and 1.1398, respectively.
