Subject: how to construct population pyramid in SAS
I have been asked to create some population pyramids, males vs. females
by 5 year age category and I'm having trouble fnding software to create
SPSS 13 will make them, apparently, but I have no documentation or
examples and the help is useless, and I don't know what the organization
of the data should be to fit into its plug and chug. I've googled for
examples but haven't found any.
I can find instructions for making them in Excel, but ick, its Excel.
Does SAS have a procedure for making population pyramids? I have SAS
8.2 and Windows 2000. I've tried googling for SAS examples, but have
been having trouble understanding the ones I've found. These examples
also seem pretty complicated, enough so that I'd rather use Excel (ick).
I've also tried searching the SAS website for examples (is it me, or
does the SAS website keep getting harder and harder to use to locate
example code?) I've not had any luck there. I tried searching these
most excellent archives, but have not had much luck either. I'm
thinking this might be a SASGraph thing, but get no hits with "pyramid".
So is there some relatively simple SAS code to make population pyramids,
or am I stuck with Excel (ick)? Pointers to websites with bonehead SAS
instructions to plain old population pyramids would also be appreciated.
