SAS Processing

The PROC Step

The PROC step consists of a group of SAS statements that call and execute a procedure, usually with a SAS data set as input. Use PROCs to analyze the data in a SAS data set, produce formatted reports or other results, or provide ways to manage SAS files. You can modify PROCs with minimal effort to generate the output you need. PROCs can also perform functions such as displaying information about a SAS data set. For more information about SAS procedures, see Base SAS Procedures Guide.

PROC Step Output

The output from a PROC step can provide univariate descriptive statistics, frequency tables, crosstabulation tables, tabular reports consisting of descriptive statistics, charts, plots, and so on. Output can also be in the form of an updated data set. For more information about procedure output, see Base SAS Procedures Guide and the SAS Output Delivery System: User's Guide.
