Implementing CDISC Using SAS

Author: Chris Holland
Publisher: SAS Institute
ISBN: 9781629605364
Release Date: 2016-11-28
Genre: Computers

For decades researchers and programmers have used SAS to analyze, summarize, and report clinical trial data. Now Chris Holland and Jack Shostak have updated their popular Implementing CDISC Using SAS, the first comprehensive book on applying clinical research data and metadata to the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) standards. Implementing CDISC Using SAS: An End-to-End Guide, Second Edition, is an all-inclusive guide on how to implement and analyze the Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM) and the Analysis Data Model (ADaM) data and prepare clinical trial data for regulatory submission. Updated to reflect the 2017 FDA mandate for adherence to CDISC standards, this new edition covers creating and using metadata, developing conversion specifications, implementing and validating SDTM and ADaM data, determining solutions for legacy data conversions, and preparing data for regulatory submission. The book covers products such as Base SAS, SAS Clinical Data Integration, and the SAS Clinical Standards Toolkit, as well as JMP Clinical. Topics included in this new edition include an implementation of the Define-XML 2.0 standard, new SDTM domains, validation with Pinnacle 21 software, event narratives in JMP Clinical, and of course new versions of SAS and JMP software. Any manager or user of clinical trial data in this day and age is likely to benefit from knowing how to either put data into a CDISC standard or analyzing and finding data once it is in a CDISC format. If you are one such person--a data manager, clinical and/or statistical programmer, biostatistician, or even a clinician--then this book is for you.

The Essential Guide to SAS Dates and Times Second Edition

Author: Derek P. Morgan
Publisher: SAS Institute
ISBN: 9781629594897
Release Date: 2014-12-01
Genre: Mathematics

Why does SAS use January 1, 1960 as its arbitrary reference date? How do you convert a value such as 27 January 2003 into a SAS date? How do you put a date into a filename, or label an Excel worksheet with the date? You'll find the answers to these questions and much more in Derek Morgan's Essential Guide to SAS Dates and Times, Second Edition, which makes it easy to understand how to use and manipulate dates, times, and datetimes in SAS. Updated for SAS 9.4, with additional functions, formats, and capabilities, the Second Edition has a new chapter dedicated to the ISO 8601 standard and the formats and functions that are new to SAS, including how SAS works with Universal Coordinated Time (UTC). Novice users will appreciate the new "Troubleshooting" appendix, which discusses questions common to newer SAS users in a conversational way and provides clear examples of simple solutions to these questions. Both novice and intermediate users will find the clear, task-based examples on how to accomplish date-related tasks and the detailed explanations of standard formats and functions invaluable. Users working with intervals will appreciate the expanded discussion of the topic, which details the new custom interval capability, among other enhancements to intervals. Users working with international dates and times will benefit from the detailed discussion of the NLS facility as it relates to dates and times. Included are bonus "Quick Reference Guides" that list both the standard date and time formats and the NLS date and time formats with examples. These guides illustrate how each format displays the same date, time, or datetime, so you can find the format you want to use at a glance. The Essential Guide to SAS Dates and Times, Second Edition is the most complete and up-to-date collection of examples on how to write complex programs involving dates, times, or datetime values.

ISBN: 9783642381607
Release Date: 2013-11-22
Genre: Mathematics

Dieses Lehrbuch beschäftigt sich mit den zentralen Gebieten einer maßtheoretisch orientierten Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie im Umfang einer zweisemestrigen Vorlesung. Nach den Grundlagen werden Grenzwertsätze und schwache Konvergenz behandelt. Es folgt die Darstellung und Betrachtung der stochastischen Abhängigkeit durch die bedingte Erwartung, die mit der Radon-Nikodym-Ableitung realisiert wird. Sie wird angewandt auf die Theorie der stochastischen Prozesse, die nach der allgemeinen Konstruktion aus der Untersuchung von Martingalen und Markov-Prozessen besteht. Neu in einem Lehrbuch über allgemeine Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie ist eine Einführung in die stochastische Analysis von Semimartingalen auf der Grundlage einer geeigneten Stetigkeitsbedingung mit Anwendungen auf die Theorie der Finanzmärkte. Das Buch enthält zahlreiche Übungen, teilweise mit Lösungen. Neben der Theorie vertiefen Anmerkungen, besonders zu mathematischen Modellen für Phänomene der Realität, das Verständnis.​
