The Little SAS Book: A Primer, Second Edition

Book Cover

by Lora D. Delwiche, Susan J. Slaughter

Want to learn SAS Software but you don't know where to start? This friendly easy-to-read guide gently introduces you to the most commonly used features of SAS software plus a whole lot more! Topics cover the gamut of Base SAS concepts, an introduction to SAS/STAT, and getting your data into SAS (including PROC IMPORT and PROC EXPORT). You'll find a generous amount of information addressing: basic SAS concepts (such as DATA and PROC steps); using the SAS windowing environment; working with permanent and temporary SAS data sets; inputting, and reading data; modifying data; introduction to the Output Delivery System (ODS) which enables you to generate HTML files for viewing with an internet browser; introduction to macros; debugging SAS programs (including the DATA step debugger); and appendices to help programmers of other software languages become comfortable with the SAS programming language. Each topic is divided into a easy-to-use self-contained two-page layout complete with examples and graphics. This format enables new users to get up and running quickly, while the examples allow you to type in the program and see them work! More seasoned programmers will find this guide a useful reference to have on hand.
