Subject: How can I detect any real deviation from a uniform monthly
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
I have a file of unique patients who had diagnosis "Depression" during the calendar year.
For each of the patients I have Month of Birth value (1-12).
I expect seasonal variations in the diagnosis of depression (depending on what was
the month of the birth value).
How can I validate or disprove this hypothesis? How can I detect any real deviation
from a uniform monthly distribution?
How to implement it in SAS code?
Could you, please, give me a hand?
Thank you in advance,
