Statistical procedures use ODS Graphics to create graphs as part of their output. ODS Graphics is described in detail in ChapterĀ 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 ChapterĀ 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 ChapterĀ 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.

By default, PROC VARCLUS produces a dendrogram.

You can refer to every graph produced through ODS Graphics with a name. The name of the graph that PROC VARCLUS generates is listed in Table 107.4, along with the statement and option required to produce it.
