The GEE Procedure

ODS Graphics

Subsections:

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.

ODS Graph Names

PROC GEE assigns a name to each graph it creates using ODS. You can use these names to refer to the graphs when you use ODS. Table 43.13 lists the names.

To request these graphs, ODS Graphics must be enabled and you must specify the statement and option that are indicated in Table 43.13.
