This example-rich guide shows you how to conduct a wide range of statistical analyses with no SAS programming required. For each analysis, one or more real data sets, a brief introduction of the technique, and a clear explanation of the SAS Enterprise Guide output are provided.
Discover how easy it is to perform statistical analysis using the power of SAS Enterprise Guide. Suitable for students new to statistics and to SAS, as well as for experienced professionals, James Davis's Statistics Using SAS Enterprise Guide provides an introduction to the basics of SAS Enterprise Guide and to statistics. Early chapters in this easy-to-follow book address topics such as how to work with data sets (including SAS data sets, data sets in Microsoft Excel, and other formats) and how to perform queries. A separate chapter on descriptive statistics offers a wide range of techniques and multiple presentation options. Later chapters provide detailed discussions (without calculus) of statistical theory and step-by-step examples that illustrate how to apply the appropriate SAS Enterprise Guide tasks, including both complete output and thorough analyses of the results. These chapters present examples of one-sample inference, two-sample inference, analysis of variance, correlation and regression, and table analysis
This book presents the basic procedures for utilizing SAS Enterprise Guide to analyze statistical data. SAS Enterprise Guide is a graphical user interface (point and click) to the main SAS application. Each chapter contains a brief conceptual overview and then guides the reader through concrete step-by-step examples to complete the analyses. The eleven sections of the book cover a wide range of statistical procedures including descriptive statistics, correlation and simple regression, t tests, one-way chi square, data transformations, multiple regression, analysis of variance, analysis of covariance, multivariate analysis of variance, factor analysis, and canonical correlation analysis. Designed to be used either as a stand-alone resource or as an accompaniment to a statistics course, the book offers a smooth path to statistical analysis with SAS Enterprise Guide for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, as well as professionals in psychology, education, business, health, social work, sociology, and many other fields.
Students and instructors of statistics courses using SAS University Edition will welcome this book. Learning fundamental statistics is essential to solving problems with SAS. Essential Statistics Using SAS University Edition demonstrates how to use SAS University Edition to apply a variety of statistical methodologies, from the simple to the not-so-simple, to a range of data sets. Learn how to apply the appropriate statistical method to answer a particular question about a data set, and correctly interpret the numerical results that you obtain. SAS University Edition users who are new to SAS or who need a refresher course will benefit from the statistics overview and topics, such as multiple linear regression, logistic regression, and Poisson regression.
Statistical analysis is ubiquitous in modern medical research. Logistic regression, generalized linear models, random effects models, and Cox's regression all have become commonplace in the medical literature. But while statistical software such as SAS make routine application of these techniques possible, users who are not primarily statisticians must take care to correctly implement the various procedures and correctly interpret the output. Statistical Analysis of Medical Data Using SAS demonstrates how to use SAS to analyze medical data. Each chapter addresses a particular analysis method. The authors briefly describe each procedure, but focus on its SAS implementation and properly interpreting the output. The carefully designed presentation relegates the theoretical details to "Displays," so that the code and results can be explored without interruption. All of the code and data sets used in the book are available for download from either the SAS Web site or www.crcpress.com. Der and Everitt, authors of the best-selling Handbook of Statistical Analyses Using SAS, bring all of their considerable talent and experience to bear in this book. Step-by-step instructions, lucid explanations and clear examples combine to form an outstanding, self-contained guide--suitable for medical researchers and statisticians alike--to using SAS to analyze medical data.
In Customer Segmentation and Clustering Using SAS Enterprise Miner, Second Edition, Randy Collica employs SAS Enterprise Miner and the most commonly available techniques for customer relationship management (CRM). You will learn how to segment customers more intelligently and to achieve, or at least get closer to, the one-to-one customer relationship that today's businesses want. Step-by-step examples and exercises clearly illustrate the concepts of segmentation and clustering in the context of CRM. The book is divided into four parts. Part 1 reviews the basics of segmentation and clustering at an introductory level, providing examples from a variety of industries. Part 2 offers an in-depth treatment of segmentation with practical topics such as when and how to update your models and clustering with many attributes. Part 3 goes beyond traditional segmentation practices to introduce recommended strategies for clustering product affinities, handling missing data, and incorporating textual records into your predictive model with SAS Text Miner software. Part 4 takes segmentation to a new level with advanced techniques such as clustering of product associations, developing segmentation scoring models from customer survey data, combining segmentations using ensemble segmentation, and segmentation of customer transactions. Updates to the second edition include four new chapters in Part 4, Chapters 13-16, that introduce new and advanced analytic techniques that can be valuable in many customer segmentation applications. In addition, Chapter 9 has a new section on using the Imputation node in SAS Enterprise Miner to accomplish missing data imputation, compared to PROC MI used in earlier sections of Chapter 9. Also included are business insights and motivations for selection settings and analytical decisions on many of the examples included in this second edition. This straightforward guide will appeal to anyone who seeks to better understand customers or prospective customers. Additionally, professors and students will find the book well suited for a business data mining analytics course in an MBA program or related course of study. You should understand basic statistics, but no prior knowledge of data mining or SAS Enterprise Miner is required. This book is part of the SAS Press program.
Bridging the gap between statistics texts and SAS documentation, Elementary Statistics Using SAS is written for those who want to perform analyses to solve problems. The first section of the book explains the basics of SAS data sets and shows how to use SAS for descriptive statistics and graphs. The second section discusses fundamental statistical concepts, including normality and hypothesis testing. The remaining sections of the book show analyses for comparing two groups, comparing multiple groups, fitting regression equations, and exploring contingency tables. For each analysis, author Sandra Schlotzhauer explains assumptions, statistical approach, and SAS methods and syntax, and makes conclusions from the results. Statistical methods covered include two-sample t-tests, paired-difference t-tests, analysis of variance, multiple comparison techniques, regression, regression diagnostics, and chi-square tests. Elementary Statistics Using SAS is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of Ramon Littell and Sandra Schlotzhauer's SAS System for Elementary Statistical Analysis.
