SAS is an integrated software suite for advanced analytics, business intelligence, data management, and predictive analytics. You can use SAS software through both a graphical interface and the SAS programming language, or Base SAS.
With SAS software, you can complete these tasks:
- Access data in almost any format, including SAS tables, Microsoft Excel tables, and database files.
- Manage and manipulate your existing data to get the data that you need. For example, you can subset your data, combine it with other data, and create new columns.
- Analyze your data using statistical techniques ranging from descriptive measures like correlations to logistic regression and mixed models to sophisticated methods such as modern model selection and Bayesian hierarchical models.
- Present the results of your analyses in a meaningful report that you can share with others. The reports that you create can be saved in a wide variety of formats, including HTML, PDF, and RTF.
