I am very new to SAS macro language (and even SAS programming), I've
spent the last couple of hours on the following problem:
I need to develop a simple macro to apply PHREG procedure on hundreds
of simulated data. The dataset is manipulated by three parameters:
U: Sample size, 60, 120, 180
P_c: Probability, 0.0, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, 1.0
delta: 0.5, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, 1.5, 1.8, 2.0
Each of the parameter combination are run on three seed numbers: 539,
259, 59.
I figured out the DO LOOP iteration for the variable Sample size as:
DO I = 60 to 180 by 60;
...my code for PHREG...;
END;
But I simply couldn't figure out how to do the iteration for the rest
of the variables, as they do not have a particular pattern. I spent
some time on DO ... WHILE ...; ARRAY, etc., but still have no clue.
Can someone give me a quick hint on how to code iteration on variables
such as P_c, delta, and seed numbers as above?
Thanks so much!
