Data Analysis Using SAS offers a comprehensive core text focused on key concepts and techniques in quantitative data analysis using the most current SAS commands and programming language. The coverage of the text is more evenly balanced among statistical analysis, SAS programming, and data/file management than any available text on the market. It provides students with a hands-on, exercise-heavy method for learning basic to intermediate SAS commands while understanding how to apply statistics and reasoning to real-world problems.

Designed to be used in order of teaching preference by instructor, the book is comprised of two primary sections: the first half of the text instructs students in techniques for data and file managements such as concatenating and merging files, conditional or repetitive processing of variables, and observations. The second half of the text goes into great depth on the most common statistical techniques and concepts - descriptive statistics, correlation, analysis of variance, and regression - used to analyze data in the social, behavioral, and health sciences using SAS commands. A student study at comes replete with a multitude of computer programs, their output, specific details on how to check assumptions, as well as all data sets used in the book.

Data Analysis Using SAS is a complete resource for Data Analysis I and II, Statistics I and II, Quantitative Reasoning, and SAS Programming courses across the social and behavioral sciences and health - especially those that carry a lab component.
