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 fromBirthWgtdataset*/ 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.
