The VARCLUS Procedure

FREQ Statement

FREQ variable ;

If a variable in your data set represents the frequency of occurrence for the other values in the observation, include the variable’s name in a FREQ statement. The procedure then treats the data set as if each observation appears n times, where n is the value of the FREQ variable for the observation. If the value of the FREQ variable is less than 1, the observation is not used in the analysis. Only the integer portion of the value is used. The total number of observations is considered equal to the sum of the FREQ variable.
