The VARIOGRAM Procedure |

**PROC VARIOGRAM***options***;**

You can specify the following options in the PROC VARIOGRAM statement.

**DATA=***SAS-data-set*-
specifies a SAS data set containing the
*x*and*y*coordinate variables and the VAR statement variables. **OUTDISTANCE=***SAS-data-set***OUTDIST=***SAS-data-set***OUTD=***SAS-data-set*-
specifies a SAS data set in which to store summary distance
information. This data set contains a count
of all pairs of data points within a given
distance interval. The number of distance
intervals is controlled by the
NHCLASSES= option in the COMPUTE statement.
The OUTDISTANCE= data set is useful for plotting
modified histograms of the count data for determining
appropriate lag distances.
See the section "OUTDIST=
*SAS-data-set*" for details. **OUTPAIR=***SAS-data-set***OUTP=***SAS-data-set*-
specifies a SAS data set in which to store distance
and angle information for each pair of
points in the DATA= data set.
This option should be used with caution
when the DATA= data set is large. If
*n*denotes the number of observations in the DATA= data set, the OUTPAIR= data set contains [(*n*(*n*-1))/2] observations unless you restrict it with the OUTPDISTANCE= option in the COMPUTE statement. The OUTPDISTANCE= option in the COMPUTE statement excludes pairs of points when the distance between the pairs exceeds the OUTPDISTANCE= value. See the section "OUTPAIR=*SAS-data-set*" for details. **OUTVAR=***SAS-data-set***OUTVR=***SAS-data-set*-
specifies a SAS data set in which to store the
continuity measures.
See the section "OUTVAR=
*SAS-data-set*" for details.
