|Subject: ||grouping counties in my regions on a US map?|
|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset=us-ascii|
I am a novice at SAS. What I would like to do is produce US maps,
but with different regions than either counties or states. I have
a data file which allocates counties (includes state fips,
county fips, and my region code) to my regions.
What I want is a choropleth map which will color code my regions
according to the level some variables that are in a second file,
for example, it might be a demographic variable such as the
proportion of the population of the region which is female.
I checked out the SAS FAQ at the SAS site and found the examples
somewhat related, but confusing. I have not found a FAQ for
this news group. If anyone could help I would appreciate it.
