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 […]

PharmaSUG-China 2014

The Third PharmaSUG-China conference was held in Beijing last week, and I had the pleasure to attend this excellent conference along with a record number of attendees. On Thursday, I presented two 1/2 day seminars on ODS Graphics.  One titled "Advanced Topics in GTL" and another titled "Complex Clinical Graphs […]

More on Spaghetti Plots

In her article Creating Spaghetti Plots Just got Easy, Lelia McConnell has provided us a glimpse into some new useful features in the SAS 9.4M2 release.  The term Spaghetti plots generally refers to cases where time series plots have to be  identified by multiple group classifications.  The support for the […]

Epidemic Curve Graph

A few weeks back I wrote an article on Grouped Timeline for creating a stacked timeline for onset of different virus.  The idea in that article was to display a stacked needle on a time axis using a HighLow plot. Such graphs are also referred to as EPI or Epidemic Curve […]

Proportional Euler Diagram

The topic of VENN diagrams had come up a while ago.  At that time, I thought it may be interesting to build a proportional VENN diagram.  But, reading up on VENN Diagrams, I learned that VENN diagrams represent all intersections of N sets, regardless of whether there are actually any observations in one […]

The HIGHLOW Plot

SG Procedures and GTL provide you with a large set of plot statements, such as BarChart, ScatterPlot, BoxPlot and more.  You can use them for the intended purpose, and all is well and good.  However, the real fun starts when you leverage a plot to do something that was not […]
