Introduction to SAS: Simple Inference Procedures
March 10 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A
Prerequisites: Participant should have some familiarity with introductory statistics and be able to load data into and perform basic data manipulations in SAS.
In this one-day, six-hour workshop we will discuss the basics of using SAS for statistical inference and modeling. The workshop is held in a computer lab and will alternate between instructor presentations and attendee work sessions. After this course the attendee will be able to perform, in SAS, basic statistical inference procedures (hypothesis tests, confidence intervals) for a variety of data scenarios such as one-sample, independent-samples, and paired-sample t-tests; chi-square test of independence of two categorical variables; correlation between two interval variables; ANOVA; simple and multiple linear regression; and simple and multiple logistic regression. Good statistical practice will be demonstrated but this workshop is not designed to teach statistics.
