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. For example, it includes tools for building interfaces to the World Wide Web and compilers for the C programming language. Most of its products are integrated together and can be used as building blocks to construct a seamless system.

In this tutorial, we will cover topics such as getting data into the SAS system, summarizing the data, getting started with some basic macro concepts, and using basic statistical procedures.
