Yesterday I attended a virtual talk by Bob Rodriguez on his famous topic: ODS Statistical Graphics in SAS 9.2. You can learn lots of details by reading his paper. Bob's paper shows examples of the graphs you can get, how to control their appearance, and what SAS syntax to use.
The question came up: can I access these great new statistical graphs in SAS Enterprise Guide? The answer is: Yes, of course. In fact, you'll get the new graphs automatically from most of the analytical tasks within SAS Enterprise Guide and SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office. No programming necessary!
Here are the tasks that currently provide the new graphs:
|Cluster Analysis||One-Way ANOVA|
|Distribution Analysis||Proportional Hazards|
|Factor Analysis||t Test|
|Generalize Linear Models||Create Time Series Data|
|Life Tables||One-Way Frequencies|
|Linear Models||Summary Statistics|
|Linear Regression||Characterize Data|
|Logistic Regression||Forecast Studio tasks (using SAS Forecast Server)|
|Mixed Models||Capability (Histogram, etc.)|
Of course, you can also use SAS Enterprise Guide to run your own SAS programs and access any of the new ODS Graphics, using the approach presented in Bob's paper.
