Tutorial Details: Data Analysis with SAS

Date: Tuesday, October 11, 2005, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm

Instructor(s): Haoyu Yu, MSI

The SAS system is a collection of programs originally designed to perform statistical analysis of data. The SAS software started out in the 1970s as a package for statistical analysis. By the early 1980s, SAS had already branched out into graphics and spreadsheets. The SAS system now has a diverse family of products. Most of its products are integrated together and can be used as building blocks to construct a seamless system.

MSI has the SAS system installed on its supercomputers. In this tutorial, we will cover some topics on multivariate data analysis, such as principal component analysis and canonical correlation analysis. We will also cover techniques to write a basic SAS code that can perform these analyses.

Prerequisites: Basic introductory statistics
