 The SCORE Procedure

## Example 57.3: Custom Scoring Coefficients

This example uses a specially created custom scoring data set and produces Output 57.3.1. The first scoring coefficient creates a variable that is Age-Weight; the second scoring coefficient evaluates the variable RunPulse-RstPulse; and the third scoring coefficient totals all six variables. Since the scoring coefficients data set (data set A) does not contain any observations with _TYPE_='MEAN' or _TYPE_='STD', the data in the Fitness data set (see Example 57.1) are not standardized before scoring.

```   data A;
input _type_ \$ _name_ \$
Age Weight RunTime RunPulse RestPulse;
datalines;
SCORE  AGE_WGT  1 -1  0  0  0
SCORE  RUN_RST  0  0  0  1 -1
SCORE  TOTAL    1  1  1  1  1
;

proc print data=A;
title 'CONSTRUCTED SCORING EXAMPLE';
title2 'Scoring Coefficients';
run;

proc score data=Fitness score=A out=B;
var Age Weight RunTime RunPulse RestPulse;
run;

proc print data=B;
title2 'Scored Data';
run;
```
