Tutorial Details: Getting Started with SAS at MSI - hands-on

Date: Tuesday, March 30, 2010, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Haoyu Yu, MSI

The SAS system started out in the 1970s as a software package for statistical analysis, but is now a diverse family of integrated products that can be used as building blocks for constructing a complete data analysis system for data sets ranging from small to very large.

In this tutorial, we provide an introduction to SAS, namely, how to run SAS on MSI machines. Among other skills, we will learn to load, create, and combine data sets in different ways, generate random samples, post results on the Web, and make simple plots. If time allows, we will also cover writing basic code, using common statements and functions in SAS, and using statistical procedures.

This tutorial is appropriate for people who have data and would like to process it at MSI.

Level: Introductory
