Easily Use SAS to Produce Your Graphics Diagrams, plots, and other types of graphics are indispensable components in nearly all phases of statistical analysis, from the initial assessment of the data to the selection of appropriate statistical models to the diagnosis of the chosen models once they have been fitted to the data. Harnessing the full graphics capabilities of SAS, A Handbook of Statistical Graphics Using SAS ODS covers essential graphical methods needed in every statistician’s toolkit. It explains how to implement the methods using SAS 9.4. The handbook shows how to use SAS to create many types of statistical graphics for exploring data and diagnosing fitted models. It uses SAS’s newer ODS graphics throughout as this system offers a number of advantages, including ease of use, high quality of results, consistent appearance, and convenient semiautomatic graphs from the statistical procedures. Each chapter deals graphically with several sets of example data from a wide variety of areas, such as epidemiology, medicine, and psychology. These examples illustrate the use of graphic displays to give an overview of data, to suggest possible hypotheses for testing new data, and to interpret fitted statistical models. The SAS programs and data sets are available online.

Sanjay Matange and Dan Heath's "Statistical Graphics Procedures by Example: Effective Graphs Using SAS" shows the innumerable capabilities of SAS Statistical Graphics (SG) procedures. The authors begin with a general discussion of the principles of effective graphics, ODS Graphics, and the SG procedures. They then move on to show examples of the procedures' many features. The book is designed so that you can easily flip through it, find the graph you need, and view the code right next to the example. Among the topics included are how to combine plot statements to create custom graphs; customizing graph axes, legends, and insets; advanced features, such as annotation and attribute maps; tips and tricks for creating the optimal graph for the intended usage; real-world examples from the health and life sciences domain; and ODS styles. The procedures in "Statistical Graphics Procedures by Example" are specifically designed for the creation of analytical graphs. That makes this book a must-read for analysts and statisticians in the health care, clinical trials, financial, and insurance industries. However, you will find that the examples here apply to all fields.

You just got the results from your study, and need to get some quick graphical views of your data before you begin the analysis. Do you need a crash course in the SG procedures (also known as ODS Graphics procedures) just to get a simple histogram? What should you do? The ODS Graphics Designer is the answer. With this application, you can use the interactive drag-and-drop feature to create many graphs, including histograms, box plots, scatter plot matrices, classification panels, and more. You can render your graph in batch with new data and output the results to any open ODS destination, or view the generated Graph Template Language (GTL) code as a leg-up to GTL programming. You can do all this with ease! SAS(R) ODS Graphics Designer by Example: A Visual Guide to Creating Graphs Interactively describes in detail the features of the ODS Graphics Designer. The designer application lets you, the analyst, create graphs interactively so that you can focus on the analysis, and not on learning graph syntax. This book will take you step-by-step through the features of the designer, providing you with examples of graphs that are commonly used for the analysis of data in the health care, life sciences, and finance industries. The examples in this book will help you create just the right graph with ease!

Incorporating broad coverage of the best ODS features in one book, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond goes beyond Lauren Haworth's original ODS text to demonstrate the many new and enhanced features of ODS and SAS 9.2. With SAS 9.2, ODS provides a myriad of choices for reporting and displaying analytical results with a greater variety of formatting selections and output destinations. As experienced SAS users, Lauren E. Haworth, Cynthia L. Zender, and Michele M. Burlew know how important it is to be able to produce customized output in different formats to meet the needs of clients. Geared toward all levels of SAS users, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond is an example-driven book that presents each of the wide array of ODS techniques in an easy-to-use, two-page layout, with the text and code on one page and the resulting output on the facing page. The book begins with basic syntax and progresses to more complex techniques and custom styles. You will learn to take basic SAS output and transform it into an HTML page, a word-processor-friendly RTF file, or printer-friendly PDF output. You'll learn how to generate a table of contents page for RTF and PDF files, generate bookmarks for PDF files, and generate custom page numbering for those destinations. You will also learn the basic concepts of changing style templates, using table templates with the DATA step, and using tagset templates to generate custom markup language tags and output. Other new features of ODS are also discussed, such as the ODS Graphics Framework and the new ODS Statistical Graphics procedures.
