UCLA Statistical Consulting Classes and Workshops

Classes and Workshops, Winter 2015

Introduction to SAS Programming: March 3, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, CLICC Classroom C (320 Powell), sign up here .
This is a hands-on workshop designed to introduce the basics of SAS programming.  Focus will be on writing data steps to prepare data for analysis.
Note:  Non-UCLA researchers may attend this workshop only if space is available for all interested UCLA researchers.  There is no online component to this workshop, and this workshop will not be recorded.

Analysis and Visualization of Interactions in SAS: March 5, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, 5628 Math Sciences (Visualization Portal), sign up here .
This seminar introduces methods of analyzing interactions (moderated effects) in regression models:  calculating, comparing and graphing simple effects and slopes.  Specifically, we emphasize the use of proc plm and the lsmeans and estimates statements in SAS in conjunction with a solid understanding of the regression equation.  Examples include two- and three-way interactions in linear regression and two-way interactions in logistic regression.  Although the concepts of moderation and interaction are reviewed in the seminar, some background in regression and moderation is recommended.
Note:  Non-UCLA researchers may attend this workshop only if space is available for all interested UCLA researchers.  There is no online component to this workshop, and this workshop will not be recorded.

Survey Data Analysis with SAS: March 12, 9 a.m. to 12 noon, 5628 Math Sciences (Visualization Portal), sign up here .
In this presentation, we will discuss the analysis of survey data in SAS.  We will cover descriptive statistics with continuous and categorical variables, as well as OLS and logistic regression.
Note:  Non-UCLA researchers may attend this workshop only if space is available for all interested UCLA researchers.  There is no online component to this workshop, and this workshop will not be recorded.

SAS Programming II:  March 23-25, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (all three days, with a one-hour break for lunch), CLICC Classroom C (320 Powell), sign up here .
Description:  This workshop is for those who need to learn data manipulation techniques using SAS data and procedure steps to access, transform, and summarize SAS data sets. The course builds on the concepts that are presented in the Introduction to SAS Programming workshop and is not recommended for beginning SAS software users.  In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to control SAS data set input and output; combine SAS data sets; summarize, read and write different types of data; perform DO loop and SAS array processing; and transform character, numeric and date variables.  This workshop will be presented by an instructor from SAS.
Note:  This workshop is open ONLY to those who are currently affiliated with UCLA.  There will be no online component to this workshop, and this workshop will not be recorded.
