What do Star Wars and survival analysis have in common?


DarthEveryone likes something for free – right? Well how about a free tutorial on how to use free software to analyze free data? Got to be a catch – no, not at all! In his recent post on the SAS Communities, Darth Pathos (yes – really) explains how to survive Survival Analysis using the free software, SAS University Edition, with free data, from the Albany Medical Center Hospital.

The 2012 data can be downloaded here (you can also get the 2011 data). If you don’t already have University Edition, get it here and follow the instructions from the pdf carefully.

Darth Pathos is also currently writing a book on Custom Tasks in SAS Studio for SAS Press. We will be at this year’s ENAR Spring Meeting in Austin, so please do come and talk to us at the SAS table (you don’t have to be in Star Wars character – that’s optional)!

We will also have a selection of some of our great books on display and a 20% discount for conference attendees on all the titles in our catalog. While we would be happy to discuss what we do have available, maybe there is a topic you would like to see covered that we don’t have? Perhaps you have a topic you would like to write about?What do Star Wars and survival analysis have in common? #SASbooks Click To Tweet

If you have any publishing ideas and would like more information then please pop by the SAS table or drop me an email at saspress@sas.com  and we can arrange a quick meeting.

We look forward to meeting you – may the force be with you!
