|Subject: ||SAS macros for design matrix techniques|
I have placed a set of SAS macros for generating a design matrix using
PROC IML called DESMAT on my home page
DESMAT allows different types of parametrizations, such as the
difference contrast, helmert contrast, polynomial contrast, to be used
for categorical variables in the model. The design matrix can be further
manipulated outside DESMAT, then exported to a SAS dataset to be used in
a SAS procedure. The macros are designed to modify the output of PROC
GENMOD (Generalized Linear Models) to provide information on the type of
parametrization and effect labels.
These macros were developed during the course of my PhD research, in
order to develop special models for square tables (Hendrickx 1994). An
account of its predecessor, GLIMMAT, was presented at SEUGI 92
(Hendrickx 1992). Perhaps they will be of use to others as well.
