I have previously shown how you can use the FRACTw. format in SAS to display numbers as fractions. But did you know that you can also use the format to obtain the numerator and denominator of the fraction as numbers in a program? All you need to do is to
Artificial intelligence is a powerful force for good and an extraordinary competitive advantage. But, as Peter Parker’s uncle Ben nicely put it, "With great power comes great responsibility.” Or as my friend the Swedish character Pippi Longstocking says, “If you are very strong you must also be very kind!” They
Note from Udo Sglavo: In our peace of mind blog series, we documented areas of analytics that are either evolving or not necessarily in the standard toolset of data scientists. We looked at causal modeling, network analytics, and econometrics, to name a few. With this blog post, we would like
The more I use SAS Studio in the cloud via SAS OnDemand for Academics, the more I like it. To demonstrate how useful the Files tab is, I'm going to show you what happens when you drag a text file, a SAS data set, and a SAS program into the
Since I was a teenager, I’ve had trouble sleeping. From hypnotherapy to melatonin, I've tried all kinds of lifestyle changes and strategies to get better sleep. No matter what helps, I am never immune to those nights at 3 AM where my mind won’t seem to shut off. No surprise
The UK government sector is standing on the verge of the unknown. The fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic and political outcomes of Brexit remains to be seen, but change is a certainty. Government departments will need to respond quickly and decisively. But they will have a chance
SAS stands for more than just installation and customizing. I discuss our #IMPACT view of 2021 with Thorsten Hagenberger.
I recently wrote about a simple statistical formula that approximates the wind chill temperature, which is the cumulative effect of air temperature and wind on the human body. The formula uses two independent variables (air temperature and wind speed) to predict the wind chill temperature. This article describes how to
“Running is a lifestyle for me. It’s like brushing my teeth or taking a shower. I’m always thinking about when I can get my run in. I plan out my days so I can at least run 2 to 3 times a week.” In our final installation of Black History
“The club set out to do hill training at Pilot Mountain where the guys were climbing the mountain and the ladies planned to circle the hilly countryside around the mountain. We were climbing a long hill and I was the last cyclist in the back having gotten dropped mid-hill. In
This is another in my series of blog posts where I take a deep dive into converting customized R graphs into SAS graphs. Today we'll be working on bubble maps - specifically, plotting earthquake data as bubbles on a map. R bubble map, created using geom_polygon() and geom_point() SAS bubble
The people, the energy, the quality of the content, the demos, the networking opportunities…whew, all of these things combine to make SAS Global Forum great every year. And that is no exception this year. Preparations are in full swing for an unforgettable conference. I hope you’ve seen the notifications that

Growing up in Eastern NC meant attending a diverse elementary school until 6th grade when we moved across town. I remember asking my mom where all the black people were. I think there were a total of 3 black kids in my 6th grade class. Little did I know, in
Whether you decide to limit or avoid meat, eggs and/or dairy for health, ethical, religious or environmental reasons, there are a few things you should know to ensure you’re getting the right balance of nutrients to optimize your health and energy now and for years to come.
Because ministers' hearts beat for new technologies, too, the state of Baden-Württemberg is investing more than 1 billion euros in digitization projects. At least that's the passionate impression Minister Theresia Bauer gives us when we talk to her about new technologies and how she intends to use them for Baden-Württemberg.
In cold and blustery conditions, the weather forecast often includes two temperatures: the actual air temperature and the wind chill temperature. The wind chill temperature conveys the cumulative effect of air temperature and wind on the human body. The goal of the wind-chill scale is to communicate the effect of
This is another in my series of blogs where I take a deep dive into converting customized R graphs into SAS graphs. Today I show how to combine several graphs with shared axes, which we'll call paneled graphs. This time I'll be plotting the Job Openings Rate by Industry, similar
As I write this blog post, we are nearing the milestone of 500,000 deaths in the U.S. and 2.5 million worldwide. In the U.S. we are also nearing the one-year anniversary of that week in March where the realities of the pandemic set-in and everything changed. We are all caught
If the digital trust felt by citizens has contributed to the success of many test and trace programmes, the upcoming AI legislation will likely help entrench this trend in the realm of AI.
Beth and her team of analytical consultants bring passion to their work with customers every day.
A previous article describes how to use the SGPANEL procedure to visualize subgroups of data. It focuses on using headers to display information about each graph. In the example, the data are time series for the price of several stocks, and the headers include information about whether the stock price

Amber Elam of SAS Technical Support reveals common challenges and solutions when you convert external files into SAS data sets.
The skin is the largest organ in the body. Although many might not think of it as an organ, it accounts for ~15 percent of our body weight and it protects us. We may consider just the outer layer since that's what we see, but there are two main layers
