The SASEHAVR Interface Engine

Overview: SASEHAVR Interface Engine

The SASEHAVR interface engine is a seamless interface between Haver Analytics and SAS data processing that enables SAS users to read economic and financial time series data that reside in a Haver Analytics DLX (Data Link Express) database. The Haver Analytics DLX economic and financial database offerings include U.S. economic indicators, specialized databases, and financial indicators; data about industry, industrial countries, emerging markets, and international organizations; forecasts and as-reported data; and data about U.S. regional services. For more information, see the section Data Elements Reference: Haver Analytics DLX Database Profile.

The SASEHAVR engine uses the LIBNAME statement to enable you to specify how to subset your Haver data and how to aggregate the selected time series at the same frequency. You can then use the SAS DATA step to perform further subsetting and to store the resulting time series in a SAS data set. You can perform more analysis (if desired) either in the same SAS session or in a later session.

The SASEHAVR engine supports both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows hosts. Haver Analytics supplies two versions of the DLX application programming interface (API), one for 32-bit applications (dlxapi32.dll) and one for 64-bit applications (dlxapi64.dll). Choose the appropriate application, either 32-bit or 64-bit, for your platform. You can follow the instructions for setting up your installation of the Haver API in the section Setting Up the Haver Analytics DLX Application Programming Interface.
