This workshop will help students to develop practical skills in using one of the most powerful and exhaustive statistical software packages: SAS (Statistical Analysis System). Although this workshop will include discussion of some more theoretical topics in statistics, it will not substitute for a regular statistics course .
The workshop will meet once a week for 2 hours to discuss practical exercises in SAS-programming. The workshop will include weekly assignments and a final project. The project will be a statistical analysis (using SAS of course!) of any, but preferably the student's own, data set.
We will cover the following topics:

No prerequisites are needed to take the workshop but a general knowledge of PC/MAC, VAX/UNIX, and internet environments as well as some basic understanding of statistical methods will be helpful.
