SAS Data Set is a collection of observations (rows) made on some variables (columns). A single observation or row usually consists of one or more pieces of numerical variables; each piece is called a variable. The values contained by an observation are called the observations (or rows ) of the dataset. A spreadsheet is a very simple, easy-to-use way of organizing data. On the other hand, SAS Data Set is a more powerful and complex tool for this. Typically the values in an observation are measurements made on a certain type of animal or experimental unit under consideration, or they could be observational data. Thereafter, the observations are usually saved so that they can be used later by SAS programs for statistical analyses or in some other way.
Why SAS Data Set?
- Data organization:
