Type of Tool SAS Macro
Title Boxplot
Programmer/Email ArthurWatts
Contributing Site Rochester
Description This set of Macros creates side-by-side boxplots by grouping variables with similar ranges onto the same graph. This is a quick way to check the distribution of several variables. This procedure can also be used after calling the Deltas macro, to check the distribution of changes from baseline.
