Medicare Data, SAS, WPS and R, Part 1


I've recently written on Medicare utilization data that's been made available to the public for analysis. Along with the csv file, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) provide a text script housing the SAS “infile” code to load the csv into a SAS data set for further analysis.

Steve, Nice write up and it also brings back fond memories of writing SAS jobs in a past life.

Steve, to be more balanced you should have written "... Had they been developed in a productive environment such as the spiffy WPS Workbench, or SAS Enterprise Guide (EG) or SAS Studio, however, the code would be much simpler." Of course, had the code been tailored to SAS development environments rather than the outdated batch console mode, you may have found migrating the code more taxing. So, Matthew Gillingham was doing you a significant favour.
