Answer / paul
same statistics can be produced with both means & tabulate procedures but the difference lies in reporting/presenting the result.
eg: PROC MEANS can assign labels for Variable names but can't assign labels for statistics, whereas PROC TABULATE can assign labels for both variable names and statistics.

Proc Means is used for creating reports with
mean,max,min,number of non missing values and lots more but
the statistics fields that I described above are the default

With proc tabulate we can do all work which proc report,proc
mean do with the help of proc tabulate we can have a report
which is more descriptive and can have statistics field too..
