Don't know of any existing routines, but here's a method:

* Assume X is the variable to be tested; * First generate observed frequencies using proc freq; proc freq noprint data=whatever; tables x /out=freqs;

* Get total number of observations; data total; set freqs end=last; total+count; if last; keep total;

* Compute expected frequencies, chi-square & p-value; * The values 0.38, 0.22 etc. below refer to expected proportions of X belonging to category 1, 2 etc. according to some theoretical model I'm testing - plug in your own values (they should sum to 1). In this example there are seven relevant categories; data _null_; set freqs (rename=(count=observed)) end=last; if _n_=1 then set total; select (x); when (1) expected=total*0.38; when (2) expected=total*0.22; when (3) expected=total*0.03; when (4) expected=total*0.03; when (5) expected=total*0.15; when (6) expected=total*0.06; when (7) expected=total*0.13; end; chisq+((observed-expected)**2)/expected; if last then do; df=_n_-1; p=1-probchi(chisq,df); put 'Chi-square = ' chisq df= p= 10.4; end;
