This is a good suggestion because seperate views created with SAS's
Proc SQl for each of the 5 years would not take up much space. But I
think one really needs to know how much longitudinal data is involved as
to whether it would be better to have all five years in one table or
seperate tables for each year. If its massive amounts then by all means
seperate it by year or even 6 month intervals. While doing report
writing, I've found that one can only get about 6 months worth of
counts, percents and some stats on longitudinal data on one page.
