How are you data structured? How did you obtain them? What is your
hypothesis and goal?
The basic approach is to run a regression with covariates and use the
parameter estimates to obtain a point estimate for the values of the
covariates in which you are interested. It would be wise to consider
confidence intervals around these estimates, too.
Some SAS regressions procedures about which you should briefly read that
may help you: GENMOD, MIXED, REG, and LOGISTIC. If you have stratified
sampling, then you need to consider the SURVEY procedures.
