OUTPUT
<OUT=SASdataset> <options> </ option> ;
The OUTPUT statement creates a new SAS data set that contains all the variables in the input data set and, optionally, the estimated linear predictors and their standard error estimates, the estimates of the cumulative or individual response probabilities, and the confidence limits for the cumulative probabilities. Formulas for the statistics are given in the section Linear Predictor, Predicted Probability, and Confidence Limits.
If you use the singletrial syntax, the data set also contains a variable named _LEVEL_
, which indicates the level of the response that the given row of output is referring to. For example, the value of the cumulative
probability variable is the probability that the response variable is as large as the corresponding value of _LEVEL_
. For details, see the section OUT= Data Set in the OUTPUT Statement.
The estimated linear predictor, its standard error estimate, all predicted probabilities, and the confidence limits for the cumulative probabilities are computed for all observations in which the explanatory variables have no missing values, even if the response is missing. By adding observations with missing response values to the input data set, you can compute these statistics for new observations, or for settings of the explanatory variables not present in the data, without affecting the model fit.
