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

Animation using SGPLOT

Often we want to visualize the relationship between variables over time.  The understanding of such data can be improved by viewing the animated graph over time.  With SAS 9.4, you can create animated graphs using the new animation options on the OPTIONS statement and the PRINTER destination. A popular example an
