<p>Hello All,</p>
<p>I need help in defining ordinal variables in SAS. I have age buckets given for each person. Say 26 Years-30 years as bucket 1, 31 years to 35 years as bucket 2, 36 years to 40 years as bucket 3, and so on. If I include these bucket numbers in the model, then SAS considers it as continuous numeric variable. I want to make SAS understand that these buckets are ordinal. I did not get any useful information regarding this online. </p>
<p>Can you please help me…</p>
