I. Introduction

I should start by acknowledging that I started with the (now closed down…) UMass Statistical Computing Center’s SAS/WIN Workshop sas8.pdf from December 6, 1999 and used it as the basis for this document, but they are not the same document and the original

http://www.math.umass.edu/~scc/software/handouts/sas8.pdf

would be worth reading to fill in any gaps I have created in this version.

SAS Availability and Cost

Any student, staff or faculty at UMASS may purchase a license for SAS/WIN from OIT, Lederle Bldg. (A118) (8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays). The cost of the license is an initial fee of $100 for student or $200 for faculty/staff (plus $35 for the CD) and then an annual fee[1] of $40.

Check out http://www.oit.umass.edu/hss/software/site.html for details.

SAS/WIN is available in all OIT/PCCO classrooms and labs on campus. You need an OIT account to use these labs.
