Data Management Essentials - Using SAS and JMP

Authored by Julie Kezik and Melissa Hill. Published by Cambridge University Press, June 2016.

SAS programming is a creative and iterative process designed to empower you to make the most of your organization's data. This friendly guide provides you with a repertoire of essential SAS tools for data management, whether you are a new or an infrequent user. Most useful to students and programmers with little or no SAS experience, it takes a no-frills, hands-on tutorial approach to getting started with the software. You will find immediate guidance in navigating, exploring, visualizing, cleaning, formatting, and reporting on data using SAS and JMP. Step-by-step demonstrations, screenshots, handy tips, and practical exercises with solutions equip you to explore, interpret, process and summarize data independently, efficiently and effectively.

About the authors:

Julie Kezik is a biostatistician at the Yale Center for Perinatal, Pediatric, and Environmental Epidemiology. Her primary research interests are assessing the effects of indoor and outdoor air pollution on at-risk populations, and she currently focuses on providing statistical analysis and research support for epidemiological studies of environmental exposures and early childhood health outcomes. Kezik’s current work uses a combination of measured data, traffic information, and health outcomes to help create interventions that will improve health.

Melissa Hill is a clinical programmer at Cd3 Inc. where she uses SAS to perform and support the design and programming of clinical data structures related to drug development. Prior to her position at Cd3 Inc., she worked as an epidemiologist at the Yale Center for Perinatal, Pediatric, and Environmental Epidemiology. During that time, Hill used SAS to support her various roles at the CPPEE including programmer analyst, field study coordinator, and research associate. She enjoys sharing her diverse SAS experience with other members of her team and developing new ways to harness the broad range of tools that SAS provides.
