SHOW Statement |
The SHOW statement uses the Output Delivery System to display contents of the item store. This statement is useful for verifying that the contents of the item store apply to the analysis and for generating ODS tables. You can specify the following options after the SHOW statement:
displays information about the BY variables in the source item store. If a BY statement was present when the item store was created, the PLM procedure performs the analysis separately for each BY group.
displays the "Class Level Information" table. This table is produced by the PLM procedure by default if the model contains effects that depend on classification variables.
produces the correlation matrix of the parameter estimates. If the source item store contains a posterior sample of parameter estimates, the computed matrix is the correlation matrix of the sample covariance matrix.
produces the covariance matrix of the parameter estimates. If the source item store contains a posterior sample of parameter estimates, the PLM procedure computes the empirical sample covariance matrix from the posterior estimates. You can convert this matrix into a sample correlation matrix with the CORRELATION option in the SHOW statement.
displays information about the constructed effects in the model. Constructed effects are those that were created with the EFFECT statement in the procedure run that generated the source item store.
generates the Hermite matrix . The PLM procedure chooses a reflexive, -inverse for the generalized inverse of the crossproduct matrix . See Important Linear Algebra Concepts of Chapter 3, Introduction to Statistical Modeling with SAS/STAT Software, for information about generalized inverses and the sweep operator.
displays the parameter estimates. The structure of the display depends on whether a posterior sample of parameter estimates is available in the source item store. If such a sample is present, up to the first 20 parameter vectors are shown in wide format. You can modify this number with the argument.
If no posterior sample is present, the single vector of parameter estimates is shown in narrow format. If the store contains information about the covariance matrix of the parameter estimates, then standard errors are added.
displays the SAS program that generated the item store, provided that this was stored at store generation time. The program does not include comments, titles, or some other global statements. The optional width parameter n determines the display width of the source code.
displays the generalized inverse of the crossproduct matrix . The PLM procedure obtains a reflexive -inverse by sweeping. See Important Linear Algebra Concepts of Chapter 3, Introduction to Statistical Modeling with SAS/STAT Software, for information about generalized inverses and the sweep operator.
