## Type I error rates in two-sample t-test by simulation

January 28, 2018
By

What do you do when analyzing data is fun, but you don't have any new data? You make it up.

This simulation tests the type I error rates of two-sample t-test in R and SAS. It demonstrates efficient methods for simulation, and it reminders the reader not to take the result of any single...

## Fibonacci sequence in R and SAS

December 5, 2014
By

Because the Fibonacci sequence is simply defined by recursion, it makes for an elegant programming exercise. Here is one way to do it in SAS, and another way to do it in R. I've also included unit testing code to check that it works.

Fibonacci sequence in SAS using a recursive macro:

`%macro fib(n);%if...Read more »        `

## Type I error rates in test of normality by simulation

February 26, 2014
By

This simulation tests the type I error rates of the Shapiro-Wilk test of normality in R and SAS.

First, we run a simulation in R. Notice the simulation is vectorized: there are no "for" loops that clutter the code and slow the simulation.

`# type I erroralpha <- 0.05#...Read more »        `

## Calculate RMSE and MAE in R and SAS

July 12, 2013
By

Here is code to calculate RMSE and MAE in R and SAS. RMSE (root mean squared error), also called RMSD (root mean squared deviation), and MAE (mean absolute error) are both used to evaluate models. MAE gives equal weight to all errors, while RMSE gives...

## Train neural network in R, predict in SAS

November 11, 2011
By

This R code fits an artificial neural network in R and generates Base SAS code, so new records can be scored entirely in Base SAS. This is intended to be a simple, elegant, fast solution. You don’t need SAS Enterprise Miner, IML, or any other spe...
