Statistical procedures use ODS Graphics to create graphs as part of their output. ODS Graphics is described in detail in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.
Before you create graphs, ODS Graphics must be enabled (for example, by specifying the ODS GRAPHICS ON statement). For more information about enabling and disabling ODS Graphics, see the section Enabling and Disabling ODS Graphics in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.
The overall appearance of graphs is controlled by ODS styles. Styles and other aspects of using ODS Graphics are discussed in the section A Primer on ODS Statistical Graphics in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.
Some graphs are produced by default; other graphs are produced by using statements and options. You can reference every graph produced through ODS Graphics with a name. The names of the graphs that PROC TRANSREG generates are listed in Table 104.8, along with the required statements and options.

This section illustrates one use of the PLOTS(INTERPOLATE) option for use with ODS Graphics. The data set has two groups of
observations, c
= 1 and c
= 2. Each group is sparse, having only five observations, so the plots of the transformations and fit functions are not smooth.
A second DATA step adds additional observations to the data set, over the range of x
, with y
missing. These observations do not contribute to the analysis, but they are used in computations of transformed and predicted
values. The resulting plots are much smoother in the latter case than in the former. The other results of the analysis are
the same. The following statements produce Figure 104.77 and Figure 104.78:

The results with no interpolation are shown in Figure 104.77. The transformation and fit functions are not at all smooth. The results with interpolation are shown in Figure 104.78. The transformation and fit functions are smooth in Figure 104.78, because there are intermediate points to plot.
