The GENMOD Procedure

FREQ Statement

FREQ variable ;
FREQUENCY variable ;

The variable in the FREQ statement identifies a variable in the input data set containing the frequency of occurrence of each observation. PROC GENMOD treats each observation as if it appears times, where is the value of the FREQ variable for the observation. If it is not an integer, the frequency value is truncated to an integer. If it is less than 1 or missing, the observation is not used. In the case of models fit with generalized estimating equations (GEEs), the frequencies apply to the subject/cluster and therefore must be the same for all observations within each subject.
