Travis, you'll find that even in 6.12 PROC GCHART has the STAR statement.
You can fudge any variable you want for the radius of the rose by first
computing the sd and then telling SAS that it is the *frequency*. Sort
of like this:
proc gchart data=sd_comps;
star bird / freq=sd /* noconnect */;
The noconnect statement would give you a star chart with unconnected radii.
Leaving it out will give you a rose with the radii all connected - which
may or may not be what looks best for your problem.
