What is SAS?

According to the SAS website:

SAS is an integrated system of software solutions that enables you to perform the following tasks:

--data entry, retrieval, and management
--report writing and graphics design
--statistical and mathematical analysis
--business forecasting and decision support
--operations research and project management
--applications development

How you use SAS depends on what you want to accomplish. Some people use many of the capabilities of the SAS System, and others use only a few.

In this class, we will use SAS to perform statistical analysis, specifically regression and ANOVA. As you proceed through the master's program, you will learn more capabilities of SAS.

Many graduates of our program eventually work as statisticans, but a few find jobs as SAS programmers. You are encouraged to learn as much as you can on your own, and maybe get certified as SAS Base or Advanced programmers. It will strengthen your skills as a statistician and add SAS programmer to your career options.
