FREQ Statement

FREQ variable ;

The variable in the FREQ statement identifies a numeric variable in the data set that contains the frequency of occurrence for each observation. PROC HPGENSELECT treats each observation as if it appeared $f$ times, where the frequency value $f$ is the value of the FREQ variable for the observation. If $f$ is not an integer, then $f$ is truncated to an integer. If $f$ is less than 1 or missing, the observation is not used in the analysis. When the FREQ statement is not specified, each observation is assigned a frequency of 1.
