In addition to presenting many seminars on topics in applications development, research data management, and advanced Base SAS, Derek has taught Base SAS to new users for many years. A SAS user for over 25 years and former president of the Midwest SAS Users Group, Derek has received several awards at both global and regional SAS user group conferences. In his spare time, he plays bass guitar and has played on stage with three members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Why does SAS use January 1, 1960, as its arbitrary reference date? How do you convert a value such as 27 January 2003 into a SAS date? You'll find the answers to these questions and much more in Derek Morgan's Essential Guide to SAS Dates and Times, Second Edition, which makes it easy to understand how to use and manipulate dates, times, and datetimes in SAS. Updated for SAS 9.4, the Second Edition also includes new descriptions and examples using ISO dates and durations. Novice-to-intermediate users will find the clear, task-focused examples and explanations of formats and functions invaluable; experienced users will appreciate discussions of topics such as intervals (enhanced for version 9) and international date and time formats. Included are bonus "Quick Reference Guides" listing date and time formats and NLS formats with an example so you can see how each format displays the same date, allowing you to find the format you want to use at a glance.
