Data Cleaning Techniques Business Knowledge Series
This course teaches you how to detect errors in raw data source files as well as showing you how to identify and correct errors in character and numeric SAS data. You will learn a variety of techniques for detecting problems with more complex data structures, such as data sets requiring multiple observations per subject, or requiring entries for a single subject across multiple data sets. More than simply teaching techniques for detecting and fixing data errors, this is also an excellent SAS programming course. Novice and veteran SAS programmers alike will garner new and valuable programming tips and tricks.

Knowledge of the SAS macro language is not a prerequisite, but you will learn to run macros that perform a variety of data cleaning functions. As an example, the AUTO_OUTLIERS macro automatically reports on outliers in numeric data using a concept called "trimmed statistics."

The class closes with a demonstration of an innovative process that leverages integrity constraints and audit trails to detect and programmatically clean dirty data before it even gets into your analysis data set. After class, you'll have access to every program and macro used during class, as well as a personal copy of Cody's Data Cleaning Techniques, Second Edition.

Social Network Analytics Business Knowledge Series
This course discusses how to leverage social networks for analytical purposes. Obviously, when we say "social networks," many people think of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and so on. These are all examples of networks that connect people using either friendship or professional relationships. In this course, we zoom out and provide a much more general definition of a social network. In fact, we define a social network as a network of nodes that are connected using edges. Both nodes and edges can be defined in various ways, depending on the setting. This course starts by describing the basic concepts of social networks and their applications in marketing, risk, fraud, and HR. It then defines various social metrics and illustrates how they can be used for community mining. The course also discusses how social networks can be used for predictive analytics. The course provides a sound mix of both theoretical and technical insights, as well as practical implementation details, and is illustrated by several real-life cases. The instructor extensively reports on both his research and consulting experience in the field. References to background material such as selected papers, tutorials, and guidelines are also provided.
