Subject: Graphing in SAS
Recently I asked for methods of calculating Rayleigh's statistic for
direction of flight for incubating female wood ducks leaving the nest to
forage. Instead of using the Rayleigh's test (which I realized would have
assigned statistical significance arbitrarily), I have calculated the
standard deviation of the angles of flight per bird to index the variation.
My question concerns the presentation of these results. I would like to
create a rose diagram (histogram for circular data) based on the SD value of
each bird. I found a significant difference in the SD of angles between
years, and I want to graphically illustrate this for a future publication.
I have tried using SAS, but my exposure to graphing utilities is limited.
Does anybody have suggestions about how to create such a graph in SAS or
other software? I am using SAS 6.12.
