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® Programming 1: Essentials course or the SAS® Programming 2: Data Manipulation Techniques course, or have equivalent experience
  • have an intermediate knowledge of statistics, which can be gained by attending either the Statistics 1: Introduction to ANOVA, Regression, and Logistic Regression course or the Statistics 2: ANOVA and Regression course, or have equivalent academic training.

It is very good and very simple instructions. almost to much hand holding.

The technical data in the AWS Solutions Architect course was very thorough.

I thought the course was informative and the tools to go over the material were very nice.

Great instructor, clear and concise course. Labs were easy to follow and worked perfectly.

Class was very informative, although one lab didnt but will try again later
