Entering Data

A SAS data set consists of variables and observations. Variables are quantities or characteristics being measured. Observations are sets of variable values for a single entity.

In SAS/INSIGHT software, your data are presented in a window with variables displayed in columns and observations displayed in rows, as in Figure 2.1. You can enter data directly in the data window.
