SAS Four-Part Course

SAS is a software suite for advanced analytics, multivariate analysis, data management, and predictive analytics. This four-part course gives attendees an overview of SAS as well as opportunities to gain hands-on experience with the system.

SAS Part 1 introduces the SAS system and SAS windows. Topics to be covered include creating and saving SAS programs; reading in data from simple and complex text data sets; typing variables; and obtaining frequencies, contents, and univariate statistics.

SAS Part 2covers formatting variable venues; creating SAS libraries for storing and retrieving SAS data sets and format files; reading raw data from external files; and creating new SAS data sets from existing SAS data sets, subsetting by observation and by variable.

SAS Part 3 explores how to create new SAS data sets combining information from multiple existing SAS data sets; how to sort, concatenate, interleave, and merge data sets; and how to perform the t-test, and test for no association in a contingency table.

SAS Part 4 allows time for attendees to suggest topics. Past topics include variable retyping, creating SAS datasets from SAS output; creating HTML and Microsoft Word tables, ANOVA, importing and exporting Excel files.
