Missing Values

Any observation that has missing values for the response, frequency, weight, offset, or explanatory variables is excluded from the analysis; however, missing values are valid for response and explanatory variables that are specified in the MISSING option in the CLASS statement. Observations that have a nonpositive weight or a frequency less than 1 are also excluded.

The estimated linear predictor and the fitted probabilities are not computed for any observation that has missing offset or explanatory variable values. However, if only the response value is missing, the linear predictor and the fitted probabilities can be computed and output to a data set by using the OUTPUT statement.
