Proc Transpose 1 Longitudinal data When people or experimental units are measured more than once over time, we have longitudinal data , also called repeated measures or time series data. Family economics data: total family income, expenditures, debt status for 50 families in two groups ( A and B ), annual records from 1990–1995. Records for family 1. One observation for each year. family_ Obs id income year expenses debt group 1 1 66483 1990 49804 no A 2 1 69146 1991 65634 no A 3 1 74643 1992 61820 no A 4 1 79783 1993 68387 no A 5 1 81710 1994 85504 yes A 6 1 86143 1995 75640 no A 2 Plotting longitudinal data Want to plot the income against year for each family: x = year y = income need year and income as variables.

To get separate plots for each group, we must group by family id within each group. SGplot allows only one grouping variable. Proc SGpanel data=a; produces multiple plots on one page PanelBy group / columns=2; series x=year y=income / group =family_id LineAttrs= (pattern=1 color="black"); Note: SGplot and SGpanel do not need ODS graphics on/off commands....
