A dual response axis chart is useful when the data type for the multiple measures are not compatible. For example, when overlaying measures like "This Year" sales with "Last Year" sales, the format and magnitudes of the two measures (or values for two groups) may be compatible, and it is

This is the 2nd installment of the "Getting Started" series, and the audience is the user who is new to the SG Procedures. It is quite possible that an experienced users may also find some useful nuggets here. One of the most popular and useful graph types is the Bar

An interesting question came up recently, where a colleague wanted to create a bar line chart with Revenue on the Y axis and Profit on the Y2 axis. The Revenues were all positive, but the Profit had positive and negative values. Some data I generated is shown on the right. Creating this

Often there is a need to display more than one response simultaneously for a bar chart, series plot or a vector plot. SAS 9.40M3 adds the options you need to get such results using two new options COLORRESPONSE and THICKRESPONSE where applicable. The Bar Chart on the right shows the frequency

When we first released GTL and SG Procedures back with SAS 9.2, Box Plots and Bar Charts would always treat the category axis as discrete. We realized soon enough that we need to support box plots on scaled interval axes for many clinical applications, and this was added in SAS

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

As Sheldon Cooper would say, this is the first episode of "Fun with Charts". I did not find a cool term like "Vexillology" and "Cartography" is taken by map making, so let us go with "Chartology". Yesterday, I saw a couple of interesting bar charts as shown on the right. I thought

This article is by guest contributor Lelia McConnell, SAS Tech Support. Several users have called recently to ask the question, “Can I reorder the legend entries on the bar chart that I created with PROC SPLOT?” Although there is no option that does this directly in PROC SGPLOT, the answer

The GCHART procedure has a popular option called G100 to display all the subgroups in % format such that all the subgroup values add up to 100% for each group. Each subgroup is labeled with its own % values. SGPLOT procedure does not such an option, but with a little bit of

Creating a Bar Chart with a table of statistical data aligned with the bars is a popular topic. With SAS 9.4, creating such graphs gets easier with the new AXISTABLE statement in GTL and SG procedures. But some use cases can flummox the latest gizmos. Such is the case I ran into recently. Here

Working at SAS, I consider myself fortunate to have the best employee benefits in the industry. That is one of the factors placing SAS as one of the best companies to work for worldwide, and often THE best company to work for in USA. Given that, I was curious to know the kind

Creating bar charts with group classification is very easy using the SG procedures. When using a group variable, the group values for each category are stacked by default. Using the sashelp.prdsale data set and default STAT of SUM, here is the graph and the code. SGPLOT code: proc sgplot data=sashelp.prdsale;

A Bar Line graph is commonly used in many domains. The SGPLOT procedure makes it easy to create bar line graphs where the user can customize it in many different ways. This post is prompted by a recent question on the communities page on creating such a graph, with one bar and

A parametric bar chart in SG Procedure and GTL parlance is a simplified version of the regular bar chart, where the data is assumed to be summarized prior to its usage inside the SG procedures or GTL. So, multiple occurrences of the same category and / or group combination is

Recently a reader chimed in with a question on the Do Loop article by Rick Wicklin on how to create a bar chart with percent statistics. Rick used SAS 9.3 and the reader wanted to do the same with SAS 9.2. For the basic (non-grouped) bar chart, the process is the

A few weeks ago I wrote an article on using the non breaking space character to prevent stripping of leading and trailing blanks in a string. Since then, I have discovered a few more instances where the nbsp can be a useful tool for creating graphs. One such instance came up last week

A user recently posted a question in the SAS communities forum about how to best display two measures by one classifier using a Bar-Line graph, where the scale of the two measures is vastly different. This got me thinking about various different ways to represent such data. Here are some of my thoughts,

The topic of cluster groups comes up often. By cluster group I am referring to the feature in bar charts where the group values are displayed side by side. With SAS 9.3, SG Procedures support stack or cluster grouping for Bar Charts and overlay or cluster grouping for all other
