This second edition of the successful SAS Programming for Researchers and Social Scientists has been updated to the latest SAS releases, and thoroughly revised to provide readers with even more practical tips and advice. Paul Spector takes a problem solving approach that focuses on common programming tasks encountered during data analysis. He uses examples and sample programmes to introduce various SAS programming concepts in the context of social science problems. New features in this edition include: new debugging sections providing advice about common errors; end of chapter debugging practice exercises, with answers; a new section on how to use the interface; five new appendices, including a glossary of programming terms and a summary of SAS language statements; a link to the authors online SAS course; Throughout the book, Paul Spector offers the reader a three-step approach (preplanning, writing the programme and debugging), tips about helpful features and practices to use, as well as advice on pitfalls to avoid. Basic programming concepts are introduced in a logical sequence. The principles of structured programming are introduced to help the reader write programmes that avoid excessive and disorganized branching. Appropriate for readers with little or no knowledge of the SAS language, this book will enable readers to run each example and adapt the examples to real problems that the reader may have, and create a programme.
