- This course teaches you how to use the IML procedure via the programming language. You will benefit from this course if you plan to use SAS/IML for matrix manipulations or if you plan to use it to implement statistical, econometric, or operations research methods.
Introduction to Programming with SAS/IML(R) Software
Before attending this course, you should
- have completed the SAS Programming 1: Essentials course or understand the material within
- possess an understanding of elementary matrix algebra or linear algebra concepts and operations, including matrix dimensions, matrix addition and multiplication, matrix inversion, and scalars.
Who should attend
SAS programmers, statisticians, econometricians, engineers, or others who manipulate data using matrix operators and matrix algebra
Learn how to
- explicitly assign values to a new matrix
- create a matrix from a SAS data set and create a data set from a matrix
- control which rows and columns are read from (or written to) a data set
- use matrix operators and functions in assignment statements
- use IML commands to control the programming environment
- use subscript operators to summarize and subset matrices
- use iterative and conditional processing to control program flow
- write, store, and retrieve IML modules.
- types of matrices
- assigning values to matrices
- control statements
- command statements
- call statements and functions
- assignment statements and operators
- selecting submatrices
- performing row and column reduction
Processing Data Sets
