SCORE Procedure

The SCORE procedure multiplies values from two SAS data sets, one containing coefficients (for example, factor-scoring coefficients or regression coefficients) and the other containing raw data to be scored by using the coefficients from the first data set. The result of this multiplication is a SAS data set that contains linear combinations of the coefficients and the raw data values. The following are highlights of the SCORE procedure's fetaures:

  • automatically standardizes or centers the variables from the raw data for you, based on information from the original variables and analysis from the coefficients data set
  • performs BY group processing, which enables you to obtain separate scoring for grouped observations
