SAS Fundamentals

SAS is a statistical software package that allows the user to manipulate and analyze data in many different ways. It includes four windows — Program editor, Explorer, Log, and Output window. Log window is very useful, which inform you of any errors in your program and the reason for the errors. The main interface of SAS is command-line, which allows users better control the data. And some procedures (such as import data & power analysis) can also be executed by pull-down window. SAS runs on a wider variety of computers and operating system. Because of these advantages, this software package is used in many disciplines (not just statistics!), including medical sciences, biological sciences, and social sciences.

A SAS program is a sequence of steps in a logical sequence that the user submits for execution. A SAS program is composed of three major parts:

1. The DATA STEP: Get the data set ready into SAS

2. The PROC STEP: Process data

3. Macro language: Enables flexible coding

Read In-stream Data

The data area typed directly into the SAS program. This approach works well for small datasets.




1 M 68.5 155

2 F 61.2 99

3 F 63.0 115

4 M 70.0 205

5 M 68.6 170

6 F 65.1 125

7 M 72.4 220 ;


The DATA statement indicates that a data set called HTWT is to be created. The INPUT statement names the variables in the dataset and indicates the type of variable. The $ following GENDER signifies that it is a categorical variable. The DATALINES statement indicates that the data to be read follows. The actual data is included in the program following the DATALINES statement and ending with a semi-colon. To save your program, go to File… Save and save the program with a *.sas extension. You also can create programs in any text editor.

Use the INFILE Statement

The INFILE statement allows SAS to access ASCII or text files. The INFILE command reads from the file HTWT.txt. The INPUT command names the variables as before.


INFILE ‘c:\HTWT.txt’;


SAS Import Wizard

The SAS Import wizard can be used to access spreadsheets (Excel, Lotus) and database (Access) files. It is most convenient if the variable names are in the first line of the Excel PAGE 2 spreadsheet and comply with SAS naming conventions – no more than 8 characters long, no spaces in the middle, and start with a letter.

Go to File…Import Data Select file type then select Next Enter location of the file.

Can use the Browse button. Use the Options button and make sure “Column names in first row” is checked if your spreadsheet contains variable names.

Select Next. Indicate the library (usually WORK) and the member – This is just a name to call the file while working with it in SAS.

Select NEXT if you want the PROC IMPORT statements saved for later use or FINISH to import the data. The imported file is can be viewed using the Explorer window.

Once the data is imported you can refer to the data set by its name (e.g., DATA=HTWT).

Running SAS Programs

Now let’s look at how to run a SAS program by doing the following in Windows environment:

Invoke the SAS system and include the SAS program into the session.

Submit the program and browse the results.

Navigate the SAS window environment.

SAS Data Libraries

A SAS data library is a collection of SAS files that are recognized as a unit by SAS. At invocation, SAS automatically creates one temporary and at least one permanent SAS data library for user to access: Work library: default temporary library  Sasuser: one of the permanent libraries Files in the temp library Work will be deleted after a SAS session ends, while files permanent libraries are saved.

User can assign permanent library by using the LIBNAME statement: LIBNAME libref ’library location’; For example: LIBNAME mylib ’c:\SAS\project1’; Here libref refers to the library reference name.
