CONTENT AND OBJECTIVES:
Getting Started with the SAS System
Create a SAS dataset from raw input.
Execute the dataset in batch or interactive mode - Windows.
Perform analysis on the data and print data.
Determine the syntax and logical errors for a simple program.
Differentiate between a permanent and temporary dataset.
Producing List Reports
Create a SAS dataset using the observations supplied by the instructor.
1-Sort the observations based on one of the columns.
2- Print reports with formatting and titles.
3- Display selected columns and rows in a List Report.
4- Display a List Report with column totals.
5- Sort observations in a SAS dataset.
6-Print a report with subtotals and subtitles.
Format numeric and character data values.
Create a report that can be displayed in a web browser.
Creating SAS Datasets
Read raw data files using formatted input.
Edit the data and identify erroneous information: range checking and numeric checking.
Programming with the DATA STEP
Perform transformations or create new variables.
Execute the data procedure and create a temporary data file.
Run it again and keep a permanent copy.
Print descriptive statistics for the variables.
Select rows and variables to include in a SAS dataset.
Specify and format a date.
COMBINING SAS DATASETS
Combine two SAS datasets and create a single dataset.
Use PROC FREQ to generate frequency distribution and cross tabulations.
Use PROC REPORT to 1- Modify values within a column. 2- Insert lines of text into the report. 3- Create columns. 4- Control the content of a column by coding RBREAK or a COMPUTE AFTER block for report values to be printed on the next page.
SAS Constants and Variables
Substitute a value of X for a nonmissing value of X being read from the input data is a missing value.
Produce multiple extracts from a single dataset.
Sort data in ascending and descending order.
Sort data using multiple non-contiguous fields.
Print reports with the title and footing containing a variable and data.
Print data and specify the ID of the primary key variable.
Print sub-totals and grand-totals.
Build user-defined formats from existing tables and using PROC FORMAT in conjunction with other SAS procedures: SUMMARY, FREQ, and REPORT.
Compute descriptive statistics on numeric variables in a SAS dataset and output the results to a new SAS dataset.
