Description

Powerful software often comes, unfortunately, with an overwhelming amount of documentation. As a leading statistics software package, SAS is no exception. Its manuals comprise well over 10,000 pages and can intimidate, or at least bewilder, all but the most experienced users.

A Handbook of Statistical Analyses using SAS, Second Edition comes to the rescue. Fully revised to reflect SAS Version 8.1, it gives a concise, straightforward description of how to conduct a range of statistical analyses. The authors have updated and expanded every chapter in this new edition, and have incorporated a significant amount of new material. The book now contains more graphical material, more and better data sets within each chapter, more exercises, and more statistical background for each method. Completely new topics include the following:

Data description and simple inference for categorical variables

Generalized linear models

Longitudinal data: Two new chapters discuss simple approaches, graphs, summary measure, and random effect models

Researcher or student, new user or veteran, you will welcome this self-contained guide to the latest version of SAS. With its clear examples and numerous exercises, A Handbook of Statistical Analyses using SAS, Second Edition is not only a valuable reference, but also forms the basis for introductory courses on either SAS or applied statistics at any level, from undergraduate to professional.

Review quote

"a concise but simple manual for using SAS. It has put thousands of pages of SAS manuals in less than 400 pages of a paperbackdescribes the use of SAS Version 8.1 in the Microsoft Windows Environment. However, the programming part can be used in almost any environment The authors have again done an excellent job of explaining each statement as well as the resulting output In summary, the handbook introduces SAS programming through a number of datasets of varied complexity, makes the datasets suitable for analysis through programming statements, then uses SAS procedures for analysis. SAS procedures and the resulting outputs are properly explained, and suggestions for appropriate analyses are provided where necessary. Overall, I consider this an excellent handbook for a beginning SAS user. Statisticians and nonstatisticians can both benefit from this book." -The American Statistician, November 2002 "The aim of the book - to provide an easy to read reference for new users of SAS without having to resort to trawling through the manuals -- is well met. I feel that this would be a very good starting point for any student or researcher who wishes to learn the basics about the statistical techniques covered and how they can be programmed in SAS. The examples provided in the book cover a good range of data situations and analysis techniques." -M. K. Smith, Biometrics, June 2002
