The advent of big data opened various opportunities for various fields to grow business, enhance government, and develop one’s personal lifestyle. Along with these opportunities, new statistical methods and technology require the ability to interpret behaviours of data which is useful for decision-making. Hence, the increasing demand for professionals with knowledge on data management and analysis is evident through the years. As a tool to handle big data, statistical packages or softwares are powerful instruments to bridge professionals to these wide opportunities.
SAS, a software which offers both simple and sophisticated data management and analysis, enables individuals to make new discoveries. This package can mine, alter, manage, and retrieve data from a variety of sources and then perform various statistical analyses. This training course is for those who need to learn data manipulation and simple analysis techniques using SAS through creating, accessing, transforming, describing, analyzing, and summarizing data sets. It is designed for a five-day lecture of concepts with hands-on laboratory sessions.
At the end of the course, the participants are expected to:
