General functions and SAS Macros
7.1
General functions
1.
Time and date
a.
The
TIME
function finds the time written as one number (may not make sense by
itself).
b.
The
HOUR, MINUTE, and SECOND
functions pull their corresponding values out
of the
TIME()
value.
c.
The
TODAY
function finds the number of days since January 1, 1960.
d.
The
MONTH, DAY, and YEAR
functions pull their corresponding values out of the
TODAY()
value.
e.
SAS Code and output are:
*Find the date and time;
data
time;
time_func = time();
hour = hour(time());
minute = minute(time());
second = second(time());
month = month(today());
day = day(today());
year = year(today());

Summary functions
a.
Max and sum (many others are available)
b.
Notice the use of “OF” in the code.

Percentiles (or quantiles) of probability distributions
a.
Some of the distributions we will consider are: Standard normal, t, F, and
χ
2
b.
We want to obtain the area to the left of the percentile
c.
Example: Let Z be a standard normal random variable. Then P(Z>1.96)=0.025
and P(Z<1.96)=0.975.
Given below are some codes and output illustrating how to find
percentiles (or
quantiles
).
i.
Notice (1alpha) is used in the call to the functions since alpha is usually used
to denote the area to the
RIGHT of the percentile
of interest.

Let Z be a standard normal random variable. Then P(Z<2.32635) = 0.99 and
P(Z>2.32635) = 0.01.
Let t be a random variable from a tdistribution with 5 degrees of freedom. Then
P(t<3.36493) = 0.99 and P(t>3.36493) = 0.01.
Let X be a random variable from a
χ
2
distribution with 5 degrees of freedom.
P(X<15.0863) = 0.99 and P(X>15.0863) = 0.01.
Let F be a random variable from an Fdistribution with 5 numerator and 5
denominator degrees of freedom.
P(F<10.9670) = 0.99 and P(F>10.9670) = 0.01
