proc sql;
create table males as
select age, height, weight
from sashelp.class
where sex='M' and age lt 16 
order by age;
quit;


*Get the descriptive statistics for height variable by age;
proc means data=males ;
by age;
var height;
output out=htstats mean=mean n=n std=sd median=med min=min max=max;
run;


DM 'OUT;FILE OUT REP;';
