Job Opportunities till 2020

A wide set of factors are expected to bring upon different effects on the varying segments of employment market till 2020. For an instance, recent demographic stats in the emerging job market are likely to ace up employment by 5% approx worldwide. On the other side, the surging geopolitical instability across the globe could reduce employment by 2.7%. Amidst this, artificial intelligence, touted as a replacement key for manpower is likely to have a minute effect on job reduction by a mere 1.5%.

Experiencing self-similarity in Kronecker products

You might have come across blogposts highlighting how repeated Kronecker product of a binary matrix ushers us into self-similar structures. But this time, we are taking special care in introducing self-similarity in Kronecker products – like, if M is a binary matrix then Kronecker product happens to be M@M, which is a block matrix in which each 1 inside the original matrix is replaced by a copy of M, and each O is replaced with a zero block. In this blog, @ stands for the Kronecker product (or direct product) operator implemented in IML/SAS software).

Wake Up to a World of Data Possibilities: With SAS Certification

Of late, in spite of trending insurgence of cutting edge technology tools, SAS remains one of the most popular, in-demand programming languages for advanced analytics. It’s been more than two decades, yet it didn’t lose its importance in ruling the data science market. This shows how flexible this pioneering analytics tool is, and how adaptable it is in its functionality that it stood strong through the test of time and development.

INTCK and INTNX: All about SAS Dates and Computing Intervals between Dates

INTCK-and-INTNX
 

The INTCK and INTNX functions in SAS helps you compute the time between events. This technical blog is based on the timeline of living US presidents, sourced from a Wikipedia table. The table data shows the number of years and days between events.

 

So, let’s start.

How to Simulate Multiple Samples From a Linear Regression Model

In this blog post, we will learn how to simulate multiple samples efficiently. In order to keep the discussion, easy we have simulated a single sample with ‘n’ number of observations, and ‘p’ amount of variables. But in order to use the Monte Carlo method to approximate the distribution sampling of statistics, one needs to simulate many specimens with the same regression model.

The data steps in SAS in  most blogs have 4 steps mentioned for so. However, to simulate multiple samples, put DO loop around these steps that will generate, the error term and the response variable for very observation made in the model.

How to Read Data With SAS JSON Libname Engine

To those of you unaware of the developments in the SAS world, JSON is the new XML and the number of users who need to access JSON has really grown in the recent times. This is mainly due to proliferation of REST-based APIs and other web services. A good reason for JSON being so popular is the fact that it is structured data in the format of text. We have been capable of offering simple parsing techniques, which make use of data step and most recently PROC DS2. Now with the SAS 9.4 and Maintenance 4 we now have a built-in libname engine for the JSON XML.

We are taking things a tad backwards by trying to, almost idiosyncratically complicate things that are otherwise simple. After all some say, a job of a data analyst is to do so! However, be it stupid or unnecessary this is definitely by far the coolest way to wish Merry Christmas, in data-analyst style.

How to Append Data to Add Markers to SAS Graphs

Would you like to create customized SAS graphs with the use of PROC SGPLOT and other ODS graphic procedures? Then an essential skill that you must learn is to know how to join, merge, concentrate and append SAS data sets, which arise from a variety of sources. The SG procedures, which stand for SAS statistical graphic procedures, enable users to overlay different kinds of customized curves, bars and markers. But the SG procedures do expect all the data for a graph to be in one single set of data. Thus, it often becomes necessary to append two or more sets of data before one can create a complex graph.

How to Append Data to Add Markers to SAS Graphs

 

In this blog post, we will discuss two ways in which we can combine data sets in order to create ODS graphics. An alternative option is to use the SG annotation facility, which will add extra curves and markers to the graph. We mostly recommend the use of the techniques that are given in this article for simple features and reserve annotations when adding highly complex yet non-standard features.
