SAS Programming for Researchers and Social Scientists (1st Ed.)
Taking a problem solving approach that focuses on common programming tasks that social scientists encounter in doing data analysis, Spector uses examples and sample programs to introduce various SAS programming concepts in the context of social science problems. Basic programming concepts such as loops, arrays, counters, branching, inputting, and outputting are introduced in a logical sequence as well as the principles of structured programming so that the reader can write programs that are orderly - and, avoid excessive and disorganized branching. Throughout the book, Spector offers the reader a three-step approach (preplanning, writing the program, and debugging) and tips about helpful features and practices to use as well as pitfalls to avoid. Appropriate for readers with little or no knowledge of the SAS language, the book will enable the reader to run each example, adapt the examples to real problems that the reader may have, and create a program.
