This course is for scientists and analysts who want to analyze observational data collected over time. It is not for SAS users who have collected data in a complicated experimental design. They should take the Mixed Models Analyses Using SAS® course instead.

The self-study e-learning includes:

  • Annotatable course notes in PDF format.
  • Virtual lab time to practice.

Skills Gained

  • Create individual and group profile plots and sample variograms.
  • Use the MIXED procedure to fit a general linear mixed model and a random coefficient model.
  • Plot information criteria for models with selected covariance structures.
  • Generate diagnostic plots in PROC MIXED.
  • Fit a binary generalized linear mixed model in the GLIMMIX procedure.
  • Fit an ordinal generalized linear mixed model and a model with spline effects in PROC GLIMMIX.
  • Fit a binary GEE model in the GENMOD procedure.

Who Can Benefit

  • Epidemiologists, social scientists, physical scientists, and business analysts

Prerequisites

  • Before attending this course, you should be able to:
  • Execute SAS programs and create SAS data sets.
  • Fit models using the GLM and REG procedures in SAS/STAT software.
