Last week I wrote about the 10 most popular articles from The DO Loop in 2016.
The popular articles tend to be about elementary topics that appeal to a wide range of SAS programmers. Today I present an “editor’s choice” list of technical articles that describe more advanced statistical methods in SAS.

I’ve grouped the articles into three categories: statistical graphics and visualization, statistical computations, and matrix computations. If you are a SAS statistical programmer, these articles deserve a second look.

Statistical graphics and visualization

An effect plot

SAS ODS graphics provides an easy way to create standard graphs for data analysis. The graphs in this list are more sophisticated:

Statistical computations

A nearest neighbor plot

These article show helpful statistical techniques that you should know about:

Matrix computations

The SAS DATA step is awesome. For many programming tasks, it is an efficient and effective tool. However, advanced analytical algorithms and multivariate statistics often require matrix-vector computations, which means programming in the SAS/IML language.

There you have it, 10 articles from The DO Loop in 2016 that I think are worth a second look. Did I omit your favorite article? Leave a comment.
