SAS Modules

SAS is a software suite that has the ability to mine, modify, manage and retrieve data from a variety of sources and execute statistical analysis on it. SAS offers a graphical point-and-click UI for non-technical users and more radical options via using the SAS programming language. SAS modules are made of a DATA step, which recovers and manipulates data typically creating a SAS data set, and a PROC step, which analyzes the data.
