Perhaps this example will help. The means are depend on the coding 0 vs -1. In the REG the intercepts are different. The intercept and mean are related, yes?

data test; do coding = -1,0; do year = 1989 to 2007; LateYear =ifn(year>1997,1,coding); earlyYear=ifn(year<1998,1,coding); output; end; end; run; proc print; run; proc means; class coding; run; proc reg noprint outest=est; by coding notsorted; late:model year = lateYear; early:model year = earlyYear; run; proc print; run;

Indeed, most of the results are identical, R-square, type I SS, F value etc.. But the TYPE III SS results for PERCENT_HIV are different by a factor of 8; the parameter estimate for the intercept is different, and the parameter estimate for PERCENT_HIV is different by a small amount, and the SE for the intercept and PERCENT_HIV are different. > > Any ideas how this could happen? > > Thanks > > Peter >
