# SAS: Use PROC FREQ & Show No Percentages

You can use the following methods with PROC FREQ in SAS to create frequency tables and suppress any percentage values in the resulting tables:

Method 1: Suppress Percentages in One-Way Frequency Table

```proc freq data=my_data order=freq;
tables my_variable / nopercent nocum;
run;```

Method 2: Suppress Percentages in Two-Way Frequency Table

```proc freq data=my_data order=freq;
tables my_variable1*my_variable2 / norow nocol nopercent nocum;
run;```

The following examples shows how to use each method in practice with the SAS built-in dataset called BirthWgt, which contains various characteristics for 100,000 mothers that recently gave birth.

We can use PROC PRINT to view the first 10 observations from this dataset:

```/*view first 10 observations from BirthWgt dataset*/
proc print data=sashelp.BirthWgt (obs=10);

run;
```

## Example 1: Suppress Percentages in One-Way Frequency Table

We can use the following code to create a frequency table for the Race variable:

```/*create frequency table for Race variable*/
proc freq data=sashelp.BirthWgt;
tables Race;
run;```

By default, SAS displays percentages in the frequency table.

To suppress the percentages, we can use the nopercent and nocum statements:

```/*create frequency table for Race variable and suppress percentages*/
proc freq data=sashelp.BirthWgt;
tables Race / nopercent nocum;
run;```

Notice that the frequency table only shows frequency values and no percentage values for each category.

## Example 2: Suppress Percentages in Two-Way Frequency Table

We can use the following code to create a two-way frequency table for the Race and Married variables:

```/*create frequency table for Race and Married variables*/
proc freq data=sashelp.BirthWgt;
tables Race*Married;
run;```

By default, SAS displays percentages for overall percent, row percent, and column percent for each cell in the frequency table.

To suppress the percentages, we can use the norow, nocol and nopercent statements:

```/*create frequency table for Race and Married variables and suppress percentages*/
proc freq data=sashelp.BirthWgt;
tables Race*Married / norow nocol nopercent;
run;```

Notice that the frequency table only shows frequency values and no percentage values for each cell in the table.
