The OUTPUT statement specifies an output data set to contain statistics calculated for each observation. For each statistic, specify the keyword, an equal sign, and a variable name for the statistic in the output data set. All of the names appearing in the OUTPUT statement must be valid SAS names, and none of the new variable names can match a variable already existing in the data set to which PROC NLIN is applied.
If an observation includes a missing value for one of the independent variables, both the predicted value and the residual value are missing for that observation. If the iterations fail to converge, all the values of all the variables named in the OUTPUT statement are missing values.
Table 69.6 summarizes the options available in the OUTPUT statement.
