Concentrating on the needs of those relatively new to the use of multiple imputation tools in SAS, this course provides a general introduction to using the MI and MIANALYZE procedures for multiple imputation and subsequent analyses with imputed data sets.

Skills Gained

  • recognize the type of missing data patterns that exist in your data sets
  • analyze imputed data sets using standard SAS procedures
  • use PROC MIANALYZE to correctly analyze output from imputed files and subsequent procedure output from standard SAS procedures
  • use real-world data sets in the virtual lab to obtain experience running SAS imputation procedures.

Who Can Benefit

  • Analysts, data managers, and other data professionals working with data sets with missing data


  • Before attending this course, you should
  • have a solid understanding of the SAS DATA step, which can be gained by attending the SAS(R) Programming I: Essentials course or the SAS(R) Programming II: Manipulating Data with the DATA Step course, or have equivalent experience
  • have an intermediate knowledge of statistics, which can be gained by attending either the Statistics I: Introduction to ANOVA, Regression, and Logistic Regression course or the Statistics II: ANOVA and Regression course, or have equivalent academic training.
