Statistical Analysis Software Training :


This course is designed for those who want to learn to write SAS programs to accomplish typical data-processing tasks and is a prerequisite to many other SAS courses.

Program Coverage:

This foundation course focuses on the following key areas: reading raw data files and SAS data sets and writing the results to SAS data sets; subsetting data; combining multiple SAS files; creating SAS variables and recoding data values; and creating listing and summary reports.

Getting Started with the SAS System:

  • Accessing the SAS System
  • Navigating among the SAS programming windows
  • Understanding the difference between batch mode and interactive mode
  • Opening and submitting a program in the Program Editor window
  • Checking the SAS log for program errors
  • Examining your program's output
  • Understanding data sets, variables, and observations
  • Understanding DATA and PROC steps
  • Diagnosing and correcting programming errors
  • Explaining SAS syntax and SAS naming conventions

Getting Familiar with SAS Data Sets :

  • Explain the concept of a SAS data library
  • Differentiate between a permanent library and a temporary library
  • Investigate a SAS data library using the CONTENTS procedure

Producing List Reports :

  • Generate simple list reports using the PRINT procedure
  • Display selected columns and rows in a list report
  • Display a list report with column totals
  • Sort observations in a SAS data set
  • Control page breaks for subgroups
  • Identify observations using the ID statement

Enhancing Output :

  • Customizing report appearance
  • Formatting data values
  • Creating HTML reports

Creating SAS Data Sets :

  • Using column input and formatted input
  • Examining data errors
  • Assigning variable attributes

Programming with the DATA Step :

  • Reading SAS data sets and creating variables
  • Executing statements conditionally using IF-THEN logic
  • Controlling the length of character variables explicitly with the LENGTH statement
  • Selecting rows to include in a SAS data set
  • Using SAS date constants

Combining SAS Data Sets :

  • Using the SET statement to concatenate two or more SAS data sets
  • Using the RENAME= data set option to change the names of variables
  • Using the SET and BY statements to interleave two or more SAS Data Sets

Producing Summary Reports :

  • Creating one-way and two-way frequency tables using the FREQ procedure
  • Generate simple descriptive statistics using the MEANS procedure
  • Using the REPORT procedure to create a listing report
  • Using the RBREAK statement to produce a grand total

Introduction to Graphics (Optional) :

  • Producing bar and pie charts
  • Enhancing output with titles, footnotes, color, and fonts
  • Producing plots
  • Controlling appearance of the axes
