University of Iowa SAS® Users Group

UISUG was organized in 2008 in an effort to provide SAS® training for University of Iowa staff. The Users Group was formally recognized by SAS® Institute in 2009.

The University of Iowa SAS Users Group is pleased to announce The 10th Annual SAS® Summer Training Institute

Take your research to the next level by developing your SAS skills. SAS is a complete software package, primarily used for data management and statistical analysis. SAS helps improve, integrate and manage your data allowing you to work more efficiently. This training will teach you how to programmatically import and export datasets; stack, merge, subset and transpose datasets; create new variables through calculation or categorization; and obtain descriptive summaries and data listings. In addition, procedures for performing basic statistical tests and generating graphics will be reviewed.

The Institute provides one and a half days of no-fee SAS training for new or inexperienced SAS users featuring updated course content on the latest version of SAS, which the University of Iowa has a campus-wide license for.
