Getting started with SAS. The document “software_docs_SAS_Win.pdf” on the course website describes the SAS windows that you see when you start SAS. Please read this document. This document also describes SAS Analyst for Windows, which is a menu-driven interface to SAS. For this course, we will not focus on the SAS Analyst, but will instead focus how to create and run SAS programs. However, the SAS Analyst is a convenient way to perform some SAS functions, and is worth examining. When you start SAS, you will see a “Help” item in the menu bar at the top. Select Help/”Getting Started with SAS Software”, then select “Go” for an introduction to SAS. You can access SAS documentation under the menu Help /SAS help and documentation. Select the “Content” window, and then select “SAS Products”. The SAS statistics procedures that we’ll use in this course are described in the section SAS/STAT. For this course, the most relevant sections are the “SAS/STAT User’s Guide” Introduction sections on regression, ANOVA, categorical data analysis and survival analysis. The User’s Guide has chapters describing each of the procedures in great detail, including FREQ, GLM, POWER and others that we’ll use. If we you want to know the details of how a procedure works, or what all the options are, look at these chapters.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
