Statistical Programing in SAS, Second Edition provides a foundation for programming to implement statistical solutions using SAS®, a system that has been used to solve data analytic problems for more than 40 years. Motivating example inspire readers to generate programming solutions and worked case studies illustrate full implementation of such solutions. Upper-level undergraduates, beginning graduate students, and professionals will benefit from this book. The ideal background for a reader is some background in regression modeling and introductory experience with computer programming.

Changes in the second edition include:

  • a new chapter on text processing
  • new sections including debugging and coding efficiency
  • expansion of case studies and examples
  • a major reorganization of the chapter order reflecting input from instructors teaching with this text over the last 10 years.

The coverage of statistical programming in the second edition includes:

  • Getting data into the SAS system, engineering new features, and formatting variables
  • Writing readable, and well-documented code
  • Structuring, implementing and debugging programs
  • Creating solutions to novel problems
  • Combining data sources, extracting parts of data sets, and reshaping data sets as needed for other analyses
  • Generating general solutions using macros
  • Customizing output
  • Producing insight-inspiring data visualizations
  • Parsing, processing, and analyzing text
  • Programming with Matrices
