What you'll learn

  • Learn the main components that make up SAS Programming language including DATA STEP, PROC STEPS, PROC SQL, and MACROS.
  • Every step will be covered to help you become fully functional including: reading from various sources, manipulating, reporting, and exporting
  • DATA STEP for manipulating data: concatenating, merging, subsetting/supersetting, variable assignment, conditional/Loops, Arrays
  • PROC STEPS: descriptive stats (PROC MEANS, PROC FREQ), reporting (PROC TABULATE), transposing data, formatting data, Importing/Exporting, inferential stats
  • Essential features of PROC SQL: Aggregate functions, Filtering, Joins, subqueries, Concatenating, similarities and differences with Oracle/MS SQL
  • How SAS processes data behind the scene: PROGRAM DATA VECTOR (PDV)
  • Essential elements of MACROS: the HOW and WHY of macros creation, the HOW and WHY of macros quoting


In designing this course, we tried to incorporate the current state of affairs (--- in the INTERNET AGE---) when it comes to learning a programming language, where the sheer amount of resources

at our disposal can be both a curse and a blessing.  This is no less true for SAS programming. There are more than enough resources for anyone embarking

on the goal of learning or upgrading their skills in SAS to rely on: (1) SAS particularly extensive documentation about all of their products, (2) the dynamically active community of programmers and users and their contributions; (3) the no less important arrays of courses (paid or not) offered, (4) and even the ability to learn from people next to us. We believe that none of these options is either the definitive solution, nor worthless.

However, for a learner, especially those with no prior knowledge about the programming, making the right choices can be both stressful and/or costly.

So we designed this course in a way to allow you to see the forest from steps/far away or from above so to help you build a contextual self-awareness before you step into it. Once, you have a sense of how your achievement will look like when you get there, we are convinced that (1) the journey will be less stressful, (2) any prior investment you have made or any investment you will make on that front will add value to this one. If you follow through our offer and give it a real try, many of the resources, you have found confusing before will likely start to sound valuable for you. In order to balance the need to help you get a complete picture of SAS programming and not make your journey endless, we put a serious emphasis on the WHY: why SAS does something the way it does; we go to the essential elements of each SAS component, so that you learn more than just the mechanics of making it work when you need it.
