Subject: Data Cleaning Techniques course coming to Cary, NC Nov. 19-20!

Ron Cody, author of Cody's Data Cleaning Techniques Using SAS Software, has teamed with SAS to offer a two-day course based on his book entitled Data Cleaning Techniques.


This course provides techniques for finding data errors in raw data or SAS data sets. These techniques involve using DATA step programming and SAS procedures such as FREQ, MEANS, and UNIVARIATE to detect invalid values for categorical variables or invalid numeric values, based on user-defined criteria or automatic outlier detection.

Ron has been a SAS user for more than 23 years and is the author of Cody's Data Cleaning Techniques and Applied Statistics and the SAS Programming Language. He has also authored or co-authored the following books for the SAS Institute as part of their Books by Users series: The SAS Workbook, SAS Programming by Example, and Longitudinal Data and SAS: A Programmer's Guide. Ron has also been an invited speaker at numerous local, regional, and national SAS conferences.
