Missing Values |
Any observation with missing values for the response, offset, strata, or explanatory variables is excluded from the analysis; however, missing values are valid for variables specified with the MISSING option in the CLASS or STRATA statement. Observations with a nonpositive or missing weight or with a frequency less than 1 are also excluded. The estimated linear predictor and its standard error estimate, the fitted probabilities and confidence limits, and the regression diagnostic statistics are not computed for any observation with missing offset or explanatory variable values. However, if only the response value is missing, the linear predictor, its standard error, the fitted individual and cumulative probabilities, and confidence limits for the cumulative probabilities can be computed and output to a data set by using the OUTPUT statement.
