Site LogoIntroduction to SAS: Mean Function


Contents Index


The Mean function returns the average of the values of the argument variables which have nonmissing values. Examples:

avg=Mean(x, y, z);
avg=Mean(of x1-x10);
avg=Mean(of x y z);

The first and last example assign avg the average of the variables x, y, and z which have nonmissing values. Note the differences in syntax. The last example returns the average of the variables among x1, ..., x10 which have nonmissing values.
