This short course provides a basic introduction to the Statistical Analysis System (SAS). Sessions One and Two provide: an overview of SAS and its underlying logic; an explanation of the use of the Display Manager System to run a SAS job; an introduction to the SAS Data step for reading, importing, transforming and storing numeric and character data; and how to transform temporary datasets to permanent datasets. In addition, some basic procedures in SAS will be introduced. Sessions Three and Four will concentrate on SAS programming techniques to modify data, create charts and plots; and how output can be changed with different options. A demonstration of how to use SAS/INSIGHT and SAS/ANALYST will be presented, as well as a basic description of the general linear model. The course is designed for participants with some introductory level statistical knowledge, but no previous experience in using SAS.

Because these materials are presented sequentially and build upon the basics presented at the beginning of each day, course participants need to arrive on time and attend the entire sessions.
