## Incorporate SAS/IML to Base SAS?

October 17, 2012
By

Since SAS 9.3, ODS Graphics was moved into Base SAS, which means the SAS/Graph license is not needed anymore to access ODS Graphics facilities. It’s definitely nice, but from customers’ point of view, it is not critical necessary: since the “minimum set of SAS system” in most SAS sessions includes the Base SAS, SAS/Stat...

## Example 9.32: Multiple testing simulation

May 21, 2012
By

In examples 9.30 and 9.31 we explored corrections for multiple testing and then extracting p-values adjusted by the Benjamini and Hochberg (or FDR) procedure. In this post we'll develop a simulation to explore the impact of "strong" and "weak" control...

## Do you really need to compute that matrix inverse?

August 10, 2011
By

The SAS/IML language provides two functions for solving a nonsingular nxn linear system A*x = c: The INV function numerically computes the inverse matrix, A-1. You can use this to solve for x: Ainv = inv(A); x = Ainv*c;. The SOLVE function numerically ...

## Options for Printing a Matrix

August 1, 2011
By

A matrix is an array of numbers or character strings. When I print a matrix, I usually want to see only the data. However, sometimes it is helpful to add row or column headings that indicate the names of variables or labels for rows. A simple example i...

## Example 9.1: Scatterplots with binning for large datasets

July 5, 2011
By

Scatterplots can get very hard to interpret when displaying large datasets, as points inevitably overplot and can't be individually discerned. A number of approaches have been crafted to help with this problem. One approach uses binning. This approa...
