The KDE Procedure

Example 48.5 Univariate KDE Graphics

This example uses data from the section Getting Started: KDE Procedure to illustrate the use of ODS Graphics. The following statements request the available univariate plots in PROC KDE:

ods graphics on;
proc kde data=bivnormal;
   univar x / plots=(density histogram histdensity);
   univar x y / plots=densityoverlay;
ods graphics off;

Graphs are requested by specifying the PLOTS= option in the UNIVAR statement with ODS Graphics enabled. Output 48.5.1, Output 48.5.2, and Output 48.5.3 show the kernel density estimate, histogram, and histogram with kernel density estimate overlaid, respectively, produced by the first UNIVAR statement.

Output 48.5.1: Kernel Density Estimate

 Kernel Density Estimate

Output 48.5.2: Histogram


Output 48.5.3: Histogram with Overlaid Kernel Density Estimate

 Histogram with Overlaid Kernel Density Estimate

Output 48.5.4 shows the plot produced by the second UNIVAR statement, in which the kernel density estimates for x and y are overlaid.

Output 48.5.4: Overlaid Kernel Density Estimates

 Overlaid Kernel Density Estimates
