Statistical analysis is ubiquitous in modern medical research. Logistic regression, generalized linear models, random effects models, and Cox's regression all have become commonplace in the medical literature. But while statistical software such as SAS make routine application of these techniques possible, users who are not primarily statisticians must take care to correctly implement the various procedures and correctly interpret the output. Statistical Analysis of Medical Data Using SAS demonstrates how to use SAS to analyze medical data. Each chapter addresses a particular analysis method. The authors briefly describe each procedure, but focus on its SAS implementation and properly interpreting the output. The carefully designed presentation relegates the theoretical details to "Displays," so that the code and results can be explored without interruption. All of the code and data sets used in the book are available for download from either the SAS Web site or www.crcpress.com. Der and Everitt, authors of the best-selling Handbook of Statistical Analyses Using SAS, bring all of their considerable talent and experience to bear in this book. Step-by-step instructions, lucid explanations and clear examples combine to form an outstanding, self-contained guide--suitable for medical researchers and statisticians alike--to using SAS to analyze medical data.

This textbook for a second course in basic statistics for undergraduates or first-year graduate students introduces linear regression models and describes other linear models including Poisson regression, logistic regression, proportional hazards regression, and nonparametric regression. Numerous examples drawn from the news and current events with an emphasis on health issues illustrate these concepts. Assuming only a pre-calculus background, the author keeps equations to a minimum and demonstrates all computations using SAS. Most of the programs and output are displayed in a self-contained way, with an emphasis on the interpretation of the output in terms of how it relates to the motivating example. Plenty of exercises conclude every chapter. All of the datasets and SAS programs are available from the book's website, along with other ancillary material.

SAS for Epidemiologists

This comprehensive text covers the use of SAS for epidemiology and public health research. Developed with students in mind and from their feedback, the text addresses this material in a straightforward manner with a multitude of examples. It is directly applicable to students and researchers in the fields of public health, biostatistics and epidemiology. Through a “hands on” approach to the use of SAS for a broad number of epidemiologic analyses, readers learn techniques for data entry and cleaning, categorical analysis, ANOVA, and linear regression and much more. Exercises utilizing real-world data sets are featured throughout the book. SAS screen shots demonstrate the steps for successful programming. SAS (Statistical Analysis System) is an integrated system of software products provided by the SAS institute, which is headquartered in California. It provides programmers and statisticians the ability to engage in many sophisticated statistical analyses and data retrieval and mining exercises. SAS is widely used in the fields of epidemiology and public health research, predominately due to its ability to reliably analyze very large administrative data sets, as well as more commonly encountered clinical trial and observational research data.

Bridging the gap between statistics texts and SAS documentation, Elementary Statistics Using SAS is written for those who want to perform analyses to solve problems. The first section of the book explains the basics of SAS data sets and shows how to use SAS for descriptive statistics and graphs. The second section discusses fundamental statistical concepts, including normality and hypothesis testing. The remaining sections of the book show analyses for comparing two groups, comparing multiple groups, fitting regression equations, and exploring contingency tables. For each analysis, author Sandra Schlotzhauer explains assumptions, statistical approach, and SAS methods and syntax, and makes conclusions from the results. Statistical methods covered include two-sample t-tests, paired-difference t-tests, analysis of variance, multiple comparison techniques, regression, regression diagnostics, and chi-square tests. Elementary Statistics Using SAS is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of Ramon Littell and Sandra Schlotzhauer's SAS System for Elementary Statistical Analysis.

In SAS Statistics by Example, Ron Cody offers up a cookbook approach for doing statistics with SAS. Structured specifically around the most commonly used statistical tasks or techniques--for example, comparing two means, ANOVA, and regression--this book provides an easy-to-follow, how-to approach to statistical analysis not found in other books. For each statistical task, Cody includes heavily annotated examples using ODS Statistical Graphics procedures such as SGPLOT, SGSCATTER, and SGPANEL that show how SAS can produce the required statistics. Also, you will learn how to test the assumptions for all relevant statistical tests. Major topics featured include descriptive statistics, one- and two-sample tests, ANOVA, correlation, linear and multiple regression, analysis of categorical data, logistic regression, nonparametric techniques, and power and sample size. This is not a book that teaches statistics. Rather, SAS Statistics by Example is perfect for intermediate to advanced statistical programmers who know their statistics and want to use SAS to do their analyses. This book is part of the SAS Press program.

Analysis of Clinical Trials Using SAS®: A Practical Guide, Second Edition bridges the gap between modern statistical methodology and real-world clinical trial applications. Tutorial material and step-by-step instructions illustrated with examples from actual trials serve to define relevant statistical approaches, describe their clinical trial applications, and implement the approaches rapidly and efficiently using the power of SAS. Topics reflect the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidelines for the pharmaceutical industry and address important statistical problems encountered in clinical trials. Commonly used methods are covered, including dose-escalation and dose-finding methods that are applied in Phase I and Phase II clinical trials, as well as important trial designs and analysis strategies that are employed in Phase II and Phase III clinical trials, such as multiplicity adjustment, data monitoring, and methods for handling incomplete data. This book also features recommendations from clinical trial experts and a discussion of relevant regulatory guidelines. This new edition includes more examples and case studies, new approaches for addressing statistical problems, and the following new technological updates: SAS procedures used in group sequential trials (PROC SEQDESIGN and PROC SEQTEST) SAS procedures used in repeated measures analysis (PROC GLIMMIX and PROC GEE) macros for implementing a broad range of randomization-based methods in clinical trials, performing complex multiplicity adjustments, and investigating the design and analysis of early phase trials (Phase I dose-escalation trials and Phase II dose-finding trials) Clinical statisticians, research scientists, and graduate students in biostatistics will greatly benefit from the decades of clinical research experience and the ready-to-use SAS macros compiled in this book.
