An output data set containing information regarding the association between model effects and design matrix columns is created whenever you specify the OUTPARM= option in the PROC GLMMOD statement. The OUTPARM= data set contains an observation for each column of the design matrix with the following variables:
a numeric variable, _COLNUM_
, identifying the number of the column of the design matrix corresponding to this observation
a character variable, EFFNAME
, containing the name of the effect that generates the column of the design matrix corresponding to this observation
the CLASS variables, with the values they have for the column corresponding to this observation, or blanks if they are not involved with the effect associated with this column
If there are BY-group variables or if the pattern of missing values for the dependent variables requires it, the single data set defines several design matrices. In this case, for each of these design matrices, the OUTPARM= data set also contains the following:
the current values of the BY variables, if you specify a BY statement
a numeric variable, _YPASS_
, containing the current pass of the data, if the pattern of missing values for the dependent variables requires multiple
passes
