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 to working with 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.

In this tutorial, we will discuss a few techniques to improve SAS programming. We will go through a few examples on how to access observations and combine data efficiently, how to use lookup tables to match data, and how to measure efficiencies
