The easiest way to generate analytical graphs is to let the SAS analytical procedures automatically generate graphics along with their tabular output. Simply specify ODS GRAPHICS ON within the SAS session and run the analytical procedure (some procedures provide options for managing the graphs).

Beginning in SAS 9.2, Base SAS extends the Output Delivery System (ODS) to provide ODS Graphics, which can produce business and analytical graphs. Of course, traditional SAS/GRAPH can still be used to produce a wide array of business graphs. These graphics pages demonstrate some of those alternatives.
