Hi David,

I have a dataset like this

group Independent variable

1 123 1 124 1 122 2 123 2 111 2 123 3 123 3 123 3 344 4 123 4 234

so my class the variable is group.

1) I had one option with proc logistics

proc logistic; model GROUP(order=internal ref="1")=var to be analysed / link=glogit risklimits; run;

1 :is the control group so basically finding trend by comparing with the control group.

2) option is to use proc reg with contrast statement but here we are not specifying any control group

how do i generate the contrast coeficient acording to no of groups because i need to program a macro where no of groups can change so i need to generate contrast statement at run time.

I am confused how to calculate the trend. could you throw light on how to do parametric trend statistically.

so how do I set the parametric trend.

Thanks Ankur

There is no single "the parametric trend test", unfortunately. And if there were only one, it probably wouldn't work for most data sets. :-(

So you need to describe your data and meta-data in a lot more detail, with some discussion on the overall goal here, so we have some idea of what kind of test is likely to be reasonable.

Then you would end up having to check the assumptions of whatever test gets recommended, and decide if the test can even be applied to your data.
