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.
The names of the graphs that PROC FACTOR generates are listed in Table 37.7, along with the required statements and options.
