For each statistical task, Cody includes heavily annotated examples using ODS Statistical Graphics procedures such as SGPLOT, SGSCATTER, and SGPANEL that show how SAS can produce the required statistics. Also, you will learn how to test the assumptions for all relevant statistical tests. Major topics featured include descriptive statistics, one- and two-sample tests, ANOVA, correlation, linear and multiple regression, analysis of categorical data, logistic regression, nonparametric techniques, and power and sample size. This is not a book that teaches statistics. Rather, SAS Statistics by Example is perfect for intermediate to advanced statistical programmers who know their statistics and want to use SAS to do their analyses.

Longitudinal Data and SAS details useful techniques for conducting operations between observations in a SAS data set. For quick reference, the book is conveniently organized to cover tools-an introduction to powerful SAS programming techniques for longitudinal data; case studies-a variety of illuminating examples that use Ron's techniques; and macros-detailed descriptions of helpful longitudinal data macros. Beginning to intermediate SAS users will appreciate this book's informative, easy-to-comprehend style. And users who frequently process longitudinal data will learn to make the most of their analyses by following Ron's methodologies.
