3 Plot of means and standard deviations using vline statement. 4 Clustered bar plot. 6 Distribution Plots The histogram, density, hbox and vbox statements plot the distribution of a ­continuous variable as a histogram, density plot or box plot (horizontal or vertical). These plots are described in detail in the next chapter. For categorical variables the vbar and hbar statements may be used without a response variable either with stat=freq, which is the default and so can be omitted, or with stat=percent.

3. There is no limit line for decade 30 as there is only one person in this age range. The vbar and hbar statements work in a very similar way to vline and hline and can produce a wide range of bar plots, particularly when used with the group option as in the following example. proc format; value age2grp low-50='younger' 50<-high='older'; value $sex 'F'='Female' 'M'='Male'; run; proc sgplot data=bodycomp; vbar sex / response=pctfat stat=mean limitstat=stderr limits=upper group=age groupdisplay=cluster; format age age2grp.

When used in conjunction with some data processing very sophisticated plots can be produced. 5 Summary Plots Plots of summary statistics are often useful when comparing groups. Proc sgplot can produce plots of various summary statistics as a bar plot, line plot or dot plot. The plot statements are vbar / hbar and vline / hline, ­depending on whether vertical or horizontal orientation is desired, and dot. To illustrate this, the variable age in the bodycomp dataset is first recoded into ten-year bands.
