The TABULATE procedure gives you power and flexibility in summarizing your data in table form. You can create a variety of tables ranging from simple to highly customized, including one-, two-, and three-dimensional tables that display any of a large number of descriptive statistics. You can

  • modify virtually every feature of a table
  • calculate percentages
  • produce subreports without sorting data
  • summarize data and produce a report in one step
  • generate multiple tables in one step.

PROC TABULATE computes many of the same statistics that are computed by other descriptive statistical procedures such as MEANS, FREQ, and REPORT.
