AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Provide the basics for manipulating and rendering data with the SAS system.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

A key part of teaching is to make students able to solve and solve simple statistical problems by using SAS, in particular through the use of the online manual and examples. The section on building and presenting reports is very much taken care of.

Teaching methods

The lessons are held in a computer lab. The language part always follows an exercise that is carried out by the students and whose solution is discussed collectively.

12 hours of the course are reserved by an external teacher using SAS in the profession. Here are some examples and the SQL proc is introduced.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Programming in SAS: Data Steps and Proc.

The Date Step.

• Creating SAS Data Sets from Text and Excel Files.

• SAS Data Set manipulation (selection of observations and variables). Instructions Set by and first. last.

• SAS functions.

• Retain and Sum Instructions.

• Using arrays.

• Read and manipulate DataSetSas of a different type (set, merge, update, proc append instructions).

• Various types of raw data reading and variables attributes. Formats for quantitative data, character and dates.
