Basic ODS Graphics Examples


I have written a new book: Basic ODS Graphics Examples.

It is available as a free PDF file on the web. It is in color, and all of the SAS code is available by double clicking a link at the beginning of each example. This new book complements my other recent book: Advanced ODS Graphics Examples.

The new book replaces my 2010 SAS Press book: Statistical Graphics in SAS: An Introduction to the Graph Template Language and the Statistical Graphics Procedures. Like the 2010 book, the new book provides a gentle and parallel introduction to the graph template language and the SG procedures. Most of it has been rewritten, and many new examples have been added. Both books are designed for use with SAS 9.4.

Look for me this year at SAS Global Forum, PharmaSUG, and the Joint Statistical Meetings where I will be giving talks on methods of annotating and customizing the graphs that analytical procedures produce.

    Warren Kuhfeld's 2010 book "Statistical Graphics in SAS: An Introduction to the Graph Template Language and the Statistical Graphics Procedures" has been an absolute Must Have for me - one of only five books (and only two SAS books) I always have within reach. This new book, updating with the latest materials, is a great addition! Download this book today and and his "Advanced Advanced ODS Graphics Examples" as well!
