Title: Applied Statistical Analysis Software (SAS) Programming
This course is the first-level course in Statistical Analysis Software (SAS). The course covers essentially computer-based techniques for biomedical researchers that include introduction to SAS from basics through a few advanced topics such as array and macros. Additionally, covers SAS programming methods to clean and validate the data as well as produce data summaries.
No prior knowledge of SAS is expected. However, participants are expected to have the knowledge of basic operations of PCs, such as creating folders, accessing files as well as an understanding of basic system commands on your operating systems. Knowledge of Microsoft products such as Excel, Access, Word and PowerPoint is helpful.
Statistical Analysis Software (SAS) is a very powerful and versatile as well as industry-standard statistical tool to manipulate and analyze large research data. This course is the start point for those who want to learn how to write programs in SAS and serves as a prerequisite for other courses.
After completing the course, participants will be able to have a good understanding of the
Fundamentals of SAS to develop programs for manipulation and analysis of research data relevant to biomedical research.
SAS procedures to clean and validate the data as well as create summary reports of the data.
