To test for non-linearity. I think they are specified by

plots = partial in the data statement of proc reg (with ODS GRAPHICS on).

Note the following...

Partial regression plots are related to, but distinct from, partial residual plots. Partial regression plots are most commonly used to identify data points with high leverage and influential data points that might not have high leverage. Partial residual plots are most commonly used to identify the nature of the relationship between

I think I want partial residual plots since I am testing for non-linearity in the context of multivariate not bivariate data. But the documentation is confusing to me in SAS. I think you request partial residual plots this way

while the partial regression plots uses PARTIAL In the option line of the model statement instead.
