Base SAS includes a programming language that manages data, and includes procedures for data analysis, reporting, and managing SAS files. This class is for those who need to learn data manipulation techniques using the SAS DATA step and procedures to access, transform, and summarize data. Participants should have some experience with SAS and be able to write DATA step code to subset rows and columns, compute new columns, and process data conditionally; sort tables using the SORT procedure; and apply SAS formats. This intermediate course is two full days and is limited to the first fifteen registrants.
Registrants must attend a SAS class facilitated through the NIH Library for at least half of the class sessions, or they must cancel their registration (or alert Joelle Mornini at Joelle.Mornini@nih.gov) if they cannot attend at least 2 business days prior to the start of the class. If a registrant misses more than half of SAS class sessions and fails to cancel their registration or provide notice of cancellation at least 48 hours in advance, they will be unable to register for SAS classes facilitated through the NIH Library for 12 months.
