ODS Graphics has been around since SAS 9.1.3 (in 2006!), and yet it hasn’t yet taken over the SAS graphics world, even though it could create the vast majority of graphs.
With this in mind I thought I’d create a quick poll to see what is currently being used out there in the real world:
How does your company create graphs?
- Using SAS/GRAPH and ODS Graphics (41%, 12 Votes)
- Only with non-SAS software (24%, 7 Votes)
- Using ODS Graphics (21%, 6 Votes)
- Using SAS/GRAPH (10%, 3 Votes)
- Using SAS but not SAS/GRAPH or ODS Graphics (3%, 1 Votes)
- No graphs are ever created (0%, 0 Votes)
Total Voters: 30
If you think your company ought to be using ODS Graphics more, then download our SAS training course list for free.
If you would like to learn about ODS Graphics yourself, even if your company doesn’t want to pay for a training course for you and your colleagues, then you should read “Part III: Data Visualization” (chapters 9-14) in my book “SAS Programming and Data Visualization Techniques: A Power User’s Guide” instead.
