Domain Analysis

If you specify a DOMAIN statement, the procedure displays domain statistics in a Domain Analysis table. A Domain Analysis table displays all the requested statistics for each level of the domain request. The procedure produces a separate Domain Analysis for each separate domain request. For example, the DOMAIN statement

domain A B*C*D A*C C;

specifies four domain requests:

  • A: all the levels of A

  • C: all the levels of C

  • A*C: all the interactive levels of A and C

  • B*C*D: all the interactive levels of B, C, and D

The procedure displays four Domain Analysis tables, one for each domain definition. If you use an ODS OUTPUT statement to create an output data set for domain analysis, the output data set contains a variable Domain whose values are these domain definitions. It contains all the columns in the Statistics table plus columns of domain variable values.
