The CORR Procedure

PARTIAL Statement

PARTIAL variables ;

The PARTIAL statement lists variables to use in the calculation of partial correlation statistics. Only the Pearson partial correlation, Spearman partial rank-order correlation, and Kendall’s partial tau-b can be computed. When you use the PARTIAL statement, observations with missing values are excluded.

With a PARTIAL statement, PROC CORR also displays the partial variance and standard deviation for each analysis variable if the PEARSON option is specified.
