The PROC STDIZE statement invokes the STDIZE procedure. You can specify the following options in the PROC STDIZE statement. Table 94.1 summarizes the options available in the PROC STDIZE statement.
Table 94.1: Summary of PROC STDIZE Statement Options
Option 
Description 

Specify standardization methods 

Specifies the name of the standardization method 

Specifies the method for computing initial estimates for the A estimates 

Unstandardize variables 

Unstandardizes variables when you also specify the METHOD=IN option 

Process missing values 

Omits observations with any missing values from computation 

Specifies the method or a numeric value for replacing missing values 

Replaces missing data with zero in the standardized data 

Replaces missing data with the location measure (does not standardize the data) 

Specify data set details 

Specifies the input data set 

Specifies that output variables inherit the length of the analysis variable 

Specifies the output data set 

Specifies that original variables appear in the OUT= data set 

Specifies a prefix for the standardized variable names 

Specifies the output statistic data set 

Specify computational settings 

Specifies the variances divisor 

Specifies the number of markers when you also specify PCTLMTD=ONEPASS 

Specifies the constant to multiply each value by after standardizing 

Specifies the constant to add to each value after standardizing and multiplying by the value specified in the MULT= option 

Specifies the relative fuzz factor for writing the output 

Specify percentiles 

Specifies the definition of percentiles when you also specify the PCTLMTD=ORD_STAT option 

Specifies the method used to estimate percentiles 

Writes observations containing percentiles to the data set specified in the OUTSTAT= option 

Normalize scale estimators 

Normalizes the scale estimator to be consistent for the standard deviation of a normal distribution 

Normalizes the scale estimator to have an expectation of approximately 1 for a standard normal distribution 

Specify output 

Displays the location and scale measures 
These options and their abbreviations are described (in alphabetical order) in the remainder of this section.
