The CORRESP Procedure

VAR Statement

  • VAR variables;

You should specify the VAR statement when your data are in tabular form. The VAR variables must be numeric. The VAR statement instructs PROC CORRESP to read an existing contingency table, binary indicator matrix, fuzzy-coded indicator matrix, or Burt table, rather than raw data. See the section Algorithm and Notation for a description of a binary indicator matrix and a fuzzy-coded indicator matrix.

You can specify the WEIGHT statement with the VAR statement to read category frequencies and designate supplementary rows. Specify the SUPPLEMENTARY statement to name supplementary variables. You cannot specify the TABLES statement with the VAR statement.
