Establishing Causal Inferences: Propensity Score Matching, Heckman's Two-Stage Model, Interrupted Time Series, and Regression Discontinuity Models
This course introduces some methods commonly used in program evaluation and real-world effectiveness studies, including two-stage modeling, interrupted time-series, regression discontinuity, and propensity score matching. These methods help address questions such as: Which medicine is more effective in the real world? Did an advertising program have an impact on sales? More generally, are the changes in outcomes causally related to the program being run?

Net Lift Models: Optimizing the Impact of Your Marketing Efforts
The true effectiveness of a marketing campaign is not the response rate; it is the incremental impact. That is, true effectiveness is additional revenue, directly attributable to the campaign, that would not otherwise have been generated. The problem is that targeting strategies often are not designed to maximize the incremental impact. Typical targeting models are successful at finding clients who are interested in the product, but too often these clients would have bought the product regardless of whether they received a promotion. In such cases, the incremental impact is insignificant, and marketing dollars could have been spent elsewhere. Incremental lift models are designed to maximize incremental impact (that is, the incremental lift over the control group) by targeting the undecided clients who can be motivated by marketing.

Introduction to Statistical Concepts
This course covers basic statistical concepts that are critical for understanding and using statistical methods. This course explains what statistics is and why it is important to understand the characteristics of your data.

The information in this course is a prerequisite for many other statistical courses that SAS Education offers. The course is appropriate for Base SAS and SAS Enterprise Guide users. Data, practices, and a case study are included.

1 Beginner
Fitting Poisson Regression Models Using the GENMOD Procedure
This course is for those who analyze the number of occurrences of an event or the rate of occurrence of an event as a function of some predictor variables. For example, the rate of insurance claims, colony counts for bacteria or viruses, the number of equipment failures, and the incidence of disease can be modeled using Poisson regression models.

This course includes practice data and exercises.

3 Intermediate
Determining Power and Sample Size Using SAS/STAT Software
This course teaches you how to use the POWER and GLMPOWER procedures to compute prospective power and sample size calculations.

3 Intermediate
Statistics 2: ANOVA and Regression
This course teaches you how to analyze continuous response data and discrete count data. Linear regression, Poisson regression, negative binomial regression, gamma regression, analysis of variance, linear regression with indicator variables, analysis of covariance, and mixed models ANOVA are presented in the course.

3 Intermediate
Statistical Process Control Using SAS/QC Software
This course is designed for professionals who use quality control or SPC methods to monitor, evaluate, and improve the quality of their processes. It is an ideal statistical training module to complement or supplement corporate quality training programs and Six Sigma programs.

Explaining Analytics to Decision Makers: Insights to Action
Success in analytics means getting your work applied. Getting your work applied means getting your work understood. Getting your work understood means using a different set of tools than those you used to develop your work.

This course discusses the major impediments to the effective communication of analytics and presents solutions. You will learn a variety of approaches including visualizations, foreshadowing, messaging, interpersonal communications, presentations, and most importantly, understanding your audience and adapting your message to the audience. Each approach is explored and the role in the whole of the communication process is considered.

A framework is presented to help think through the process. An individual can use this framework to plan personal communication efforts. An organization can use this framework to develop an expectation of communication for all levels of the organization.

Data Cleaning Techniques
This course, which was completely rewritten to be compatible with the third edition of the book Cody's Data Cleaning Techniques Using SAS, will help greatly speed up the process of detecting and correcting errors in both character and numeric data. In addition, there are sections on standardizing data and using Perl regular expressions to ensure that character values conform to a specific pattern (such as ZIP codes, phone numbers, and email addresses).

Although the course concentrates on methods of identifying data errors, it also teaches some programming techniques that might be new to you. For example, by using some of the latest SAS functions, you can convert a phone number in just about any form into a standard form, in only two SAS statements!

The course teaches several methods of detecting errors in numeric data including range checking as well as several methods of automatic outlier detection. There are chapters devoted to data that involves multiple observations per subject, SAS dates, and projects that include multiple data sets. 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.

All students taking this class are presented with either a printed version or PDF version of the new Data Cleaning book and are given access to dozens of macros that will greatly speed up the laborious process of cleaning your data.
