SAS Tutorials

What's in this guide?

Our written step-by-step tutorials are organized into sections. Users can work through the tutorials in order or skip through to topics of interest.

Section 1: Intro to the SAS Environment is intended for individuals who have never used SAS before. Learn how to use the the SAS user interface, create or import datasets into SAS, work with variables, and manage data.

Section 2: Exploring Data is intended for new users of SAS who have successfully worked through the material in Section 1. Learn how to examine the contents of a dataset using PROC CONTENTS and PROC PRINT, and how to produce descriptive statistics using PROC MEANS, PROC UNIVARIATE, and PROC FREQ.

All tutorials in this guide were created using SAS 9.3.
