The STDIZE Procedure

FREQ Statement

FREQ variable ;

If one variable in the input data set represents the frequency of occurrence for other values in the observation, specify the variable name in a FREQ statement. PROC STDIZE treats the data set as if each observation appeared n times, where n is the value of the FREQ variable for the observation. Nonintegral values of the FREQ variable are truncated to the largest integer less than the FREQ value. If the FREQ variable has a value that is less than 1 or is missing, the observation is not used in the analysis.


specifies that frequency values are not truncated to integers.

The nonintegral values of the FREQ variable can be used for the following standardization methods: AGK, ABW, AHUBER, AWAVE, EUCLEN, IQR, L, MAD, MEAN, MEDIAN, SPACING, STD, SUM, and USTD. The nonintegral frequency values are used for the MAD, MEDIAN, or IQR method only when PCTLMTD=ORD_STAT is specified. If PCTLMTD=ONEPASS is specified, the NOTRUNCATE option is ignored.
