Through the years: SAS Enterprise Guide versions

Last week Rick Wicklin posted a nifty chart that shows the timeline of SAS releases since Version 8. A few of you asked if I could post a similar chart for SAS Enterprise Guide. Here it is. Like Rick, I used new features in SAS 9.4 to produce this chart

Mathematical squiggles in SAS

John D. Cook shared a picture of "pretty squiggles" on his blog, as well as a prose description of the mathematics behind it. I'm more of a programmer than a mathematician, but I've attempted to transcribe his description into a SAS program. I used DATA step to generate the point

Implement BY processing for your entire SAS program

Most SAS procedures support the BY statement, which allows you to create a report or analysis for each distinct value of a variable in your data set. The syntax is simple, and SAS procedures are usually tuned to do a good job of processing the data efficiently. However, the BY

Do you mind if we dance with your DATEs (or DATETIMEs)?

Measuring the value of my DVD-by-mail movie service

Like millions of other Americans, I recently was asked to make a decision of tremendous importance to my household -- a decision that would affect the welfare of everyone in my family. That decision, of course, was whether to continue to receive Netflix movies by mail, or opt for the

Birthdays among friends

Earlier today, Rick posted interesting information about which time of year the most babies are born, at least in the USA. I don't have data nearly as extensive as what's available at the NCHS, but I do have a sample of birthday records to compare against Rick's findings.  My sample
