Subject: Difference in using proc tabulate and proc mean to compute median?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I have a large number of data and need to find the median.
I tried proc tabulate and received a WARNING: A shortage of memory has
caused the quantile computations to terminate prematurely ...
However, when I used proc mean to compute the median it can complete
without problems. So I guess my questions are 1) why proc tabulate
gives a warning while proc mean is ok, 2) if both proc works, do they
give the same result?
