Polar Graph

There are many situations where it is beneficial to display the data using a polar graph.  Often your data may contain directional information.  Or, the data may be cyclic in nature, with information over time by weeks, or years.  The simple solution is to display the directional or time data […]

CandleStick Chart with SAS 9.2

Let us start the new year by taking a trip back in history to SAS 9.2, first released in 2008, and the first SAS release that included the new ODS Graphics software including GTL and SG procedures.  While we have recently released the third maintenance on SAS 9.4 (SAS 9.40M3), […]

Adverse Events Graph with NNT

Early last year I wrote an article on how to create the "Most Frequent Adverse Events Sorted by Relative Risk" graph using the SGPLOT procedure.  The key issue here is that such a graph normally displays two plots side by side, a scatter plot of the proportion values by treatment […]

MicroMaps are a powerful way to display data where the display includes small, lightweight maps to provide geographical information regarding the data.  This geographical information gives clues to the relationship between the data that could lead to more insight. The SAS SG Procedures and GTL do not currently have built-in […]

Scatter Plot with Stacked Histograms

Last week a user expressed the need to create a graph like the one shown on the right using SAS.   This seems eminently doable using GTL and I thought I would undertake making this graph using SAS 9.3. The source data required to create this graph is only the […]

Dual Response Axis Graphs

Often we need graphs that display two or more responses by the same category values.  In many cases it is useful to plot both responses on the same response (Y) axis.  This can be helpful to understand the data and compare the magnitudes side by side.  This works when the scales […]

Graph Table

A common scenario is where we have a table of multiple measures over time. Here we have a simple example of Frequency and Response by Day.  The Response is a linear function of the Frequency, as shown in the table on the left below. The  shape of the data is […]

Axis Thresholds

Have you ever wondered why sometimes a SGPLOT or GTL graph has markers drawn beyond the extreme tick and value on an axis and sometimes not?  And, if you prefer your graphs to always have tick values on the axis that cover the whole range of data, how can you […]
