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.

The ABC of Summary Statistics and T Tests in SAS

The ABC of Summary Statistics and T Tests in SAS
 

Getting introduced to statistics for SAS training? Then, you must know how to create summary statistics (such as sample size, mean, and standard deviation) to test hypotheses and to figure confidence intervals. In this blog, we will show you how to furnish summary statistics (instead of raw data) to PROC TTEST in SAS, how to develop a data set that includes summary statistics and how to run PROC TTEST to calculate a two-sample or one-sample t test for the mean.

Predictive Analytics: In conversation with Adam Bataran, Managing Director of GTM Global Salesforce Platforms at Bluewolf
 

The question: What does predictive analytics mean and what value it imparts to the businesses today?

 

The answer: Predictive Analytics functions by implementing data, machine learning techniques and statistical algorithms to predict the future business outcomes and trends, based on past data and figures. It involves a number of distinct but advanced analytics disciplines and technologies – from deep data mining techniques and statistical analysis to predictive modeling and machine learning answers the most sought after question, “what will happen next?” or “how the customers will react to this?”.

How to Determine the Size of a SAS Data Set

How to Determine the Size of a SAS Data Set

 

When program codes, applications and SAS data sets are developed, enough attention is often not given to EFFECIENCY, especially during the initial phases of development. Since, data size and system conduct can influence a program or an application’s functioning, SAS users need to access information about a data set’s size and content. To ascertain how much disk space a data set is using, users can easily do a few calculations to learn to access metadata content and attain the important information. Determine, estimate and understand information with this following tip, which helps improve SAS performance and fine-tuning of techniques.

Import and Export of dataset using SAS and R

Import and Export of dataset using SAS and R
 

For an analyst, data is a primary raw material, which is used to draw conclusions and inferences for taking business decisions. Raw data is of less help to draw conclusions and inferences. Hence, we need to put the data into any statistical analysis software to slice and dice to bring inference for better decision making. In this post, we will discuss about the steps to import and export of a dataset using SAS and R.
