Most books on data mining focus on principles and furnish few instructions on how to carry out a data mining project. Data Mining Using SAS Applications not only introduces the key concepts but also enables readers to understand and successfully apply data mining methods using powerful yet user-friendly SAS macro-call files. These methods stress the use of visualization to thoroughly study the structure of data and check the validity of statistical models fitted to data. The text furnishes 13 easy- to-use SAS data mining macros designed to work with the standard SAS modules. No additional modules or previous experience in SAS programming is required. The author shows how to perform complete predictive modeling, including data exploration, model fitting, assumption checks, validation, and scoring new data, on SAS datasets in less than ten minutes!
