Interest here lies in using some suitable graphic for the data which might be helpful in suggesting a suitable model for the data. 2 Pie Chart, Bar Chart and Dot Plot Displays Since a categorical variable merely divides the observations into groups, the main point of a graph for such a variable is to show how evenly, or unevenly, this is done.

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. data bodycomp; set bodycomp; decade=int(age / 10)*10; run; proc sgplot data=bodycomp; vline decade / response=pctfat stat=mean limitstat=stddev; run; The vline statement requires only one variable, decade in this case, which provides the values for the x axis, referred to in this case as the category axis as categorical variables can be used.
