Description : Learn to perform a wide variety of regression analyses using SAS software with this example-driven favorite from SAS Publishing. With SAS System for Regression, Third Edition, you will learn the basics of performing regression analyses using a wide variety of models including nonlinear models. Other topics include performing linear regression analyses using PROC REG and diagnosing and providing remedies for data problems, including outliers and multicollinearity. Examples feature numerous SAS procedures including REG, PLOT, GPLOT, NLIN, RSREG, AUTOREG, PRINCOMP, and others. Authors Rudolf Freund and Ramon Littell supply a helpful discussion of theory where necessary. Some knowledge of both regression and SAS are assumed. The updated third edition includes revisions, updated material, and new material. You'll find information on using SAS/INSIGHT software, regression with a binary response with emphasis on PROC LOGISTIC, and nonparametric regression (smoothing) using moving averages and PROC LOESS. Additionally, updated material throughout the book includes high-resolution PROC REG graphics output, data sets by the OUTEST option described and illustrated, and using PROC SCORE to predict another data set.

Description : How SAS Works is a textbook designed to span the gap between the SAS Institute's "Introductory Guide", which is a very basic introduction to the SAS system, and the "User's Guide", which is a reference tool for those already well versed in SAS. How SAS Works is based on lectures and includes an introductory chapter which fills in many of the generalities about SAS. It provides the information a beginner needs to use the SAS system for small-to-medium sized jobs and helps develop a model of the SAS system in a step-by-step manner. The book is friendly and well-written, using a good flow of arguments and addressing questions an end-user might ask. It goes beyond the basic introduction, helping readers to get results from the SAS system and to make the most of other SAS Institute reference tools.

This book is intended for new users of SAS and for those who want to learn about the new features of the SAS interface.
Description : Survival analysis is a class of statistical methods for studying the occurrence and timing of events. These methods ar most often applied to the study of deaths. In fact, they were originally designed for that purpose, which explains the name survival analysis. That name is somewhat unfortunate, however, because it encourages a highly restricted view of the potential applications of these methods. Survival analysis is extremely useful for studying many different kinds of events in both the social and natural sciences, including the onset of disease, equipment failures, earthquakes, automobile accidents, stock market crahes, revoluations, job terminations, births, marriges, divorces, promotions, retirements and arrests. Because these methods have been adapted - and sometimes independently discovered - by researchers in several different fields, they also go by several different names: event history analysis (sociology), reliability analysis and failure time analysis (engineering), duration and transition analysis (u.a. developmental psychology, economics).
