Long category values occur frequently in real world use cases. This can happen with graphs for analysis of clinical research data, and also for graphs showing survey data where the question asked may be long (even a paragraph). Managing such long categories on the x or y axis is always
A few days ago, I posted an article on displaying first N bars from a data set. This is useful when the data is sorted by descending response, and only the first few values are significant. There were a few interesting comments, including one that was regarding the treatment of
PROC SGPLOT displays titles inside the graph. If you want to display a title inside the graph and a different title outside the graph, you can use the ODS LAYOUT or the GTL. The ODS LAYOUT gives you precise control over your output and enables you to display multiple graphs and tables in each page.
Often we have a graph with many bars (or categories) on the x or y axis. These categories may be sorted by descending response such as frequency of a % value. An example with simulated data is shown below. title 'Actual Values by Name'; proc sgplot data=bars2 noborder; vbar name /
SG annotation is a powerful technique for adding text, lines, arrows, shapes, and images to graphs. This blog provides a macro that can help you when you make a mistake in writing the annotations.
One key aspect of graphs used in the statistical or clinical research domains is the need to display numerical or textual information aligned with the data in the plot. Examples of such graphs are the Survival Plot or the Forest Plot. These graphs use the AXISTABLE statements available with SAS
