Getting Started with the SAS System Using SAS/ASSIST Software |

This chapter describes how to calculate statistics on your data. With data analysis, you can

- produce frequency tables or compute summary statistics,
correlations, or confidence intervals about the mean
- calculate linear regression, logistic regression,
or regression with correction for autocorrelation
- calculate analysis of variance, nonparametric
ANOVA, or
**t**-tests - produce control charts and perform capability
analysis
- compute principal components or canonical correlations
and calculate seasonal adjustment of time series
- compute percentiles, standardize or rank data,
create time-series data, and convert frequency of time-series data.

This chapter describes only the Summary statistics item of the Elementary task from the Data Analysis menu. The other tasks are similar.

The example in this chapter produces a report, as shown in the following display, that shows some summary statistics for the price and square footage of houses for sale.
