SAS Instructional Seminar

Preparing your data for analysis using SAS

Landon Sego, Graduate Student, Department of Statistics, UW-Madison

Friday, April 18, 2003, 4-5 pm AND Thursday, April 24, 4-5 pm

1221 Computer Sciences and Statistics Center, 1210 West Dayton Street


Anyone who works with data knows that more often than not, the data are not in a form that is readily usable. Data manipulation and rearrangement are often required in order to perform analysis.

SAS, a powerful software tool that is widely used in industry and academia, is particularly well-suited to data manipulation. This seminar consists of PRACTICAL EXAMPLES that demonstrate how to use SAS to do the following:

* Importing data into SAS
* Summarizing and cleaning data
* Concatenating (stacking) data sets
* Selecting specific observations
* Splitting data into multiple data sets
* Merging (combining) data sets
* Using macros to facilitate repetitive tasks
* and more....

This seminar will assume minimal experience with SAS. The slides of the presentation will be made available online for future reference.
