Overview: This course is for users who want to learn how to write SAS programs. It is the entry point to learning SAS programming and is a prerequisite to many other SAS courses. If you do not plan to write SAS programs and you prefer a point-and-click interface, you should attend the SAS Enterprise Guide 1: Querying and Reporting (EG7.1) course.

Pre-requisites: Before attending this course, you should have experience using computer software. Specifically, you should be able to

  • understand file structures and system commands on your operating systems
  • access data files on your operating systems.

No prior SAS experience is needed. If you do not feel comfortable with the prerequisites or are new to programming and think that the pace of this course might be too demanding, you can take the SAS Programming Introduction: Basic Concepts course before attending this course. SAS Programming Introduction: Basic Concepts is designed to introduce you to computer programming and presents a portion of the SAS Programming 1: Essentials material at a slower pace.

This course addresses Base SAS software.

This course also addresses SAS/ACCESS Interface to PC Files. This course is appropriate for students who are using SAS 9 software.

Who: Anyone starting to write SAS programs.

Outline: The course will explore the following topics through a series of interactive workshop sessions:

  • Intro to our chosen language
  • Basic programming conventions
  • Data structures
  • Accessing data
  • Descriptive statistics
  • Statistical analysis
  • Data manipulation
  • Data visualisation
