If you specify the NLEVELS option in the PROC FREQ statement, PROC FREQ displays the "Number of Variable Levels" table. This table provides the number of levels for all variables named in the TABLES statements. PROC FREQ determines the variable levels from the formatted variable values. For more information, see the section Grouping with Formats. The "Number of Variable Levels" table contains the following information:
Variable name
Levels, which is the total number of levels of the variable
Number of Nonmissing Levels, if there are missing levels for any of the variables
Number of Missing Levels, if there are missing levels for any of the variables
PROC FREQ displays one-way frequency tables for all one-way table requests in the TABLES statements, unless you specify the NOPRINT option in the PROC FREQ statement or the NOPRINT option in the TABLES statement. For a one-way table showing the frequency distribution of a single variable, PROC FREQ displays the name of the variable and its values. For each variable value or level, PROC FREQ displays the following information:
Frequency count, which is the number of observations in the level
Test Frequency count, if you specify the CHISQ and TESTF= options to request a chi-square goodness-of-fit test for specified frequencies
Percent, which is the percentage of the total number of observations. (The NOPERCENT option suppresses this information.)
Test Percent, if you specify the CHISQ and TESTP= options to request a chi-square goodness-of-fit test for specified percents. (The NOPERCENT option suppresses this information.)
Cumulative Frequency count, which is the sum of the frequency counts for that level and all other levels listed above it in the table. The last cumulative frequency is the total number of nonmissing observations. (The NOCUM option suppresses this information.)
Cumulative Percent, which is the percentage of the total number of observations in that level and in all other levels listed above it in the table. (The NOCUM or the NOPERCENT option suppresses this information.)
The one-way table also displays the Frequency Missing, which is the number of observations with missing values.
For one-way tables, two statistical options are available in the TABLES statement. The CHISQ option provides a chi-square goodness-of-fit test, and the BINOMIAL option provides binomial proportion statistics and tests. PROC FREQ displays the following information, unless you specify the NOPRINT option in the PROC FREQ statement:
If you specify the CHISQ option for a one-way table, PROC FREQ provides a chi-square goodness-of-fit test, displaying the Chi-Square statistic, the degrees of freedom (DF), and the probability value (Pr > ChiSq). If you specify the CHISQ option in the EXACT statement, PROC FREQ also displays the exact probability value for this test. If you specify the POINT option with the CHISQ option in the EXACT statement, PROC FREQ displays the exact point probability for the test statistic. If you specify the MIDP option in the EXACT statement, PROC FREQ displays the exact mid p-value for the chi-square test.
If you specify the BINOMIAL option for a one-way table, PROC FREQ displays the estimate of the binomial Proportion, which is the proportion of observations in the first class listed in the one-way table. PROC FREQ also displays the asymptotic standard error (ASE) and the asymptotic (Wald) and exact (Clopper-Pearson) confidence limits by default. For the binomial proportion test, PROC FREQ displays the asymptotic standard error under the null hypothesis (ASE Under H0), the standardized test statistic (Z), and the one-sided and two-sided probability values.
If you specify the BINOMIAL option in the EXACT statement, PROC FREQ also displays the exact one-sided and two-sided probability values for this test. If you specify the POINT option with the BINOMIAL option in the EXACT statement, PROC FREQ displays the exact point probability for the test. If you specify the MIDP option in the EXACT statement, PROC FREQ displays the exact mid p-value for the binomial proportion test.
If you request binomial confidence limits by specifying the BINOMIAL(CL=) option, PROC FREQ displays the "Binomial Confidence Limits" table, which includes the Lower and Upper Confidence Limits for each confidence limit Type that you request. In addition to Wald and Clopper-Pearson (Exact) confidence limits, you can request the following confidence limit types for the binomial proportion: Agresti-Coull, Blaker, Jeffreys, Likelihood Ratio, Logit, Mid-p, and Wilson (score).
If you request a binomial noninferiority or superiority test by specifying the NONINF or SUP binomial-option, PROC FREQ displays a Noninferiority Analysis or Superiority Analysis table that contains the following information: the binomial Proportion, the test ASE (under H0 or Sample), the test statistic Z, the probability value, the noninferiority or superiority limit, and the test confidence limits. If you specify the BINOMIAL option in the EXACT statement, PROC FREQ also provides the exact probability value for the test, and exact test confidence limits.
If you request a binomial equivalence test by specifying the EQUIV binomial-option, PROC FREQ displays an Equivalence Analysis table that contains the following information: binomial Proportion and the test ASE (under H0 or Sample). PROC FREQ displays two one-sided tests (TOST) for equivalence, which include test statistics (Z) and probability values for the Lower and Upper tests, together with the Overall probability value. PROC FREQ also displays the equivalence limits and the test-based confidence limits. If you specify the BINOMIAL option in the EXACT statement, PROC FREQ provides exact probability values for the TOST and exact test-based confidence limits.
PROC FREQ displays all multiway table requests in the TABLES statements, unless you specify the NOPRINT option in the PROC FREQ statement or the NOPRINT option in the TABLES statement.
For two-way to multiway crosstabulation tables, the values of the last variable in the table request form the table columns. The values of the next-to-last variable form the rows. Each level (or combination of levels) of the other variables forms one stratum.
There are three ways to display multiway tables in PROC FREQ. By default, PROC FREQ displays multiway tables as separate two-way crosstabulation tables for each stratum of the multiway table. Also by default, PROC FREQ displays these two-way crosstabulation tables in table cell format. Alternatively, if you specify the CROSSLIST option, PROC FREQ displays the two-way crosstabulation tables in ODS column format. If you specify the LIST option, PROC FREQ displays multiway tables in list format, which presents the entire multiway crosstabulation in a single table.
By default, PROC FREQ displays two-way crosstabulation tables in table cell format. The row variable values are listed down the side of the table, the column variable values are listed across the top of the table, and each row and column variable level combination forms a table cell.
Each cell of a crosstabulation table can contain the following information:
Frequency, which is the number of observations in the table cell. (The NOFREQ option suppresses this information.)
Expected frequency under the hypothesis of independence, if you specify the EXPECTED option
Deviation of the cell frequency from the expected value, if you specify the DEVIATION option
Cell Chi-Square, which is the cell’s contribution to the total chi-square statistic, if you specify the CELLCHI2 option
Tot Pct, which is the cell’s percentage of the total multiway table frequency, for n-way tables when n > 2, if you specify the TOTPCT option
Percent, which is the cell’s percentage of the total (two-way table) frequency. (The NOPERCENT option suppresses this information.)
Row Pct, or the row percentage, which is the cell’s percentage of the total frequency for its row. (The NOROW option suppresses this information.)
Col Pct, or column percentage, which is the cell’s percentage of the total frequency for its column. (The NOCOL option suppresses this information.)
Cumulative Col%, or cumulative column percentage, if you specify the CUMCOL option
The table also displays the Frequency Missing, which is the number of observations with missing values.
If you specify the CROSSLIST option, PROC FREQ displays two-way crosstabulation tables in ODS column format. The CROSSLIST column format is different from the default crosstabulation table cell format, but the CROSSLIST table provides the same information (frequencies, percentages, and other statistics) as the default crosstabulation table.
In the CROSSLIST table format, the rows of the display correspond to the crosstabulation table cells, and the columns of the display correspond to descriptive statistics such as frequencies and percentages. Each table cell is identified by the values of its TABLES row and column variable levels, with all column variable levels listed within each row variable level. The CROSSLIST table also provides row totals, column totals, and overall table totals.
For a crosstabulation table in CROSSLIST format, PROC FREQ displays the following information:
the row variable name and values
the column variable name and values
Frequency, which is the number of observations in the table cell. (The NOFREQ option suppresses this information.)
Expected cell frequency under the hypothesis of independence, if you specify the EXPECTED option
Deviation of the cell frequency from the expected value, if you specify the DEVIATION option
Standardized Residual, if you specify the CROSSLIST(STDRES) option
Pearson Residual, if you specify the CROSSLIST(PEARSONRES) option
Cell Chi-Square, which is the cell’s contribution to the total chi-square statistic, if you specify the CELLCHI2 option
Total Percent, which is the cell’s percentage of the total multiway table frequency, for n-way tables when n > 2, if you specify the TOTPCT option
Percent, which is the cell’s percentage of the total (two-way table) frequency. (The NOPERCENT option suppresses this information.)
Row Percent, which is the cell’s percentage of the total frequency for its row. (The NOROW option suppresses this information.)
Column Percent, the cell’s percentage of the total frequency for its column. (The NOCOL option suppresses this information.)
The table also displays the Frequency Missing, which is the number of observations with missing values.
If you specify the LIST option in the TABLES statement, PROC FREQ displays multiway tables in a list format rather than as crosstabulation tables. The LIST option displays the entire multiway table in one table, instead of displaying a separate two-way table for each stratum. The LIST option is not available when you also request statistical options. Unlike the default crosstabulation output, the LIST output does not display row percentages, column percentages, and optional information such as expected frequencies and cell chi-squares.
For a multiway table in list format, PROC FREQ displays the following information:
the variable names and values
Frequency, which is the number of observations in the level (with the indicated variable values)
Percent, which is the level’s percentage of the total number of observations. (The NOPERCENT option suppresses this information.)
Cumulative Frequency, which is the accumulated frequency of the level and all other levels listed above it in the table. The last cumulative frequency in the table is the total number of nonmissing observations. (The NOCUM option suppresses this information.)
Cumulative Percent, which is the accumulated percentage of the level and all other levels listed above it in the table. (The NOCUM or the NOPERCENT option suppresses this information.)
The table also displays the Frequency Missing, which is the number of observations with missing values.
PROC FREQ computes statistical tests and measures for crosstabulation tables, depending on which statements and options you specify. You can suppress the display of these results by specifying the NOPRINT option in the PROC FREQ statement. With any of the following information, PROC FREQ also displays the Sample Size and the Frequency Missing.

If you specify the CL option, PROC FREQ also displays confidence limits for these measures.
If you specify the PLCORR option, PROC FREQ displays the polychoric correlation and its asymptotic standard error (ASE). For tables, this statistic is known as the tetrachoric correlation (and is labeled as such in the displayed output).
