BASELINE <OUT=SASdataset> <COVARIATES=SASdataset> <TIMELIST=list> <keyword=name …keyword=name> </ options>;
The BASELINE statement creates a SAS data set (named by the OUT= option) that contains the predicted values at specified times that partition the time axis for every set of covariates in the COVARIATES= data set. If the COVARIATES= data set is not specified, PROC ICPHREG uses a reference set of covariates that consists of the reference levels for the CLASS variables and the average values for the continuous variables.
Table 51.3 summarizes the options that you can specify in the BASELINE statement.
