  1. SAS Programming SAS Data Mart

  2. Outline • Access different format of data for SAS • SAS data mart • SAS data manipulation

  3. Making Use of SAS Enterprise Guide Code • Import a text file • Example: Orders.txt • Import an Excel file • Example: SupplyInfo.xls

  4. Learn from Examples • SAS Help • Contents -> Learning to use SAS -> Sample SAS Programs -> Base SAS • “Base Usage Guide Examples” • Chapter 3, 4

  5. Import an Excel Sheet procimport out=work.commrex datafile ="C:\Lin\Shared\ISQS6339\Commrex_3358.xls" dbms=excel replace; sheet="Company"; getnames=yes; mixed=no; scantext=yes; usedate=yes; scantime=yes; run; procprint data=work.commrex; run;

  6. Excel SAS/ACCESS LIBNAME Engine libname xlsdata 'C:\Lin\Shared\ISQS6339\Commrex_6339.xls'; procprint data=xlsdata.New1; run;

  7. Exercise 10: SAS Data Step Programming • Import and print text file Userlog00.txt • Import and print Excel sheet customers in Afs_customers.xls • Send the Word file containing the Screenshots of two outputs to

  8. SAS Data Mart • Definitions with minor differences • A repository for data to be used as a source for business intelligence • Object-oriented data repository, held for decision support and BI needs. • A data mart is a specialized version of a data warehouse. • Like data warehouses, data marts contain a snapshot of operational data that helps business people to strategize based on analyses of past trends and experiences. • The key difference is that the creation of a data mart is predicated on a specific, predefined need for a certain grouping and configuration of select data. • A data mart configuration emphasizes easy access to relevant information.

  9. SAS Data Mart Structures for Different Purposes • Longitudinal analysis • Data mart has observations over time • The generalized form of the data structure: time <-- value --> category • Example: Beer sales • Transactional data, and aggregated levels • Example: web log • The order of rows matters • Cross-sectional dimension data – ranked by categories • Interleaved time series – ranked by time

  10. Auction • Description: This is data from 19 livestock auction markets. The columns include: the number of head of different livestock sold (in thousands) including CATTLE, CALVES, HOGS, and SHEEP, the cost of operation of the auction market (in thousands of dollars) (COST), and the market identifier (MARKETID). • The object is to use multiple linear regression to describe the relationship between the cost of operations to the number of livestock sold in the various classes. COST will be the dependent variable and CATTLE, CALVES, HOGS, and SHEEP the independent variables. • An additional variable, VOLUME, is the total of all major livestock sold in each market. It is the sum of the variables CATTLE, CALVES, HOGS, and SHEEP, and can be used to demonstrate an exact linear dependency between independent variables. rows, columns. • Regression, Graphic Analysis

  11. Beer Sales • Description: Beer sales records monthly sales of beer in hectoliters, along with the average high and low temperatures in the region, over a period of five years. • The object is to see how beer sales change over time. You can also consider the relationships between beer sales and temperatures. • 4 rows, 60 columns. • Regression, Time Series

  12. SAS Data Mart Topics • Data accessing • Data manipulation – Proc SQL • Data transposing • Data transformations • Interval-scaled observations processing • Derived variables • Time intervals • Define start and end of the interval • Define how intervals are measured • Binning Observations into groups • Transformations of distributions • Replacing missing values • Categorical observations processing • Coding for predictive modeling • Data preparation for different formats of data marts • Data sampling • Model scoring and automation

  13. Data Transpose • Basic transposing tasks (Ch14) • From a multi-rows-per-subject to a one-row-per-subject • From a one-row-per-subject to a multi-rows-per-subject • Creating key-value tables • Transposing longitudinal data (Ch15) • From STANDARD to INTERLEAVED and back • From CROSS SECTIONAL to STANDARD and back • Complex scenarios • Macro

  14. Data Transformations • Transformations of Interval-Scaled Variables (Ch16) • Simple derived variables • Derived relative variables • Time intervals • Binning observations into groups • Transformations of distributions • Replacing missing values • Transformations of Categorical Variables (Ch17) • Derived variables • Combining categories • Dummy coding of categorical variables • Multidimensional categorical variables

  15. Exercise 11 • Data transpose. Write a SAS code to transpose SAS data set Auction in the shared directory. • Transpose without other parameters • Drop some variables • Remove the generated variables Input data. • Userlog0.txt, Userlog1.txt

  16. SAS Programming Illustrative Examples • Data sets merge • SAS Procedures (Proc) • Proc Freq • Proc Means • Demonstration: QUERYLOG.TXT

  20. Case Study – Building a Customer Data Mart • Business Context • To create an analytical model that predicts customers that have a high probability to leave the company. • To create a data mart that reflects the properties and behaviors of customers. • The data mart will also contain a variable that presents the fact that a customer has left the company at a certain point in time. • Five SAS datasets • Customer – demographic and customer baseline data • Accounts – information customer accounts • Leasing – data on leasing information • Callcenter – transactional data on call center contacts • Scores – transactional data of value segment scores • The datasets have the unique CUSTID variable.

  21. Data Mart Programs • Create aggregation on a subject level of ACCOUNTS, LEASING, CALLCENTERS and SCORES tables • ACCOUNT • Derive sums per customer • Calculate an account type split based on the balance • LEASING • Summarize the value and the annual rate per customer • CALLCENTER • Aggregate the call center data over all customers using the FREQ proc • Calculate the frequencies for the category COMPLAINT • SCORES • Contains the VALUESEGMENT for each customer and month. If a customer cancelled his contract, he got an “8.lost”, or he got “1.Gold”, etc. • Create three output data sets: value segments in actual month, one month ago, and in a future month • Join the resulting tables together and create a CUSTOMER DATA MART table.

  22. Exercise 12 • Use PROC FREQ to generate a summary statistics table from 6339EX12.xls dataset • Hints • Define path: • libname xlsdata ‘<path>\6339EX12.xls'; • Define the worksheet as ‘weblog$’n • Column: Page, Row: UserID • Explore the data mart created by the code of • Use SAS Enterprise Guide to create joint tables from the dataset • Try One-way Frequency and Summary Statistics functions with the ACCOUNTS data set

  23. More Topics • Multiple Interval-Scaled Observation per Subject • Multiple Categorical per Subject • Coding for Predictive Modeling • Data Preparation for Multi-Rows-per-Subject and Longitudinal Data Marts • Sampling • Scoring and Automation • Do’s and Don’ts
