Why learn SAS?
SAS is a software suite developed for advanced analytics, multivariate analyses, business intelligence, data management, and predictive analytics. SAS has evolved over time, and is in wide use for analysis of healthcare, medical, and clinical trials data. Knowledge of SAS is a standard requirement for many biostatistician and healthcare data science roles, typically at pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
According to Burning Glass, there were more than 100,000 job postings in the last 12 months that require SAS as a skill. Some of the functional job titles requiring SAS are Business Intelligence Analyst, Management Analyst, Statistician, or Biostatistician. If your work involves data analysis, modeling, or visualization, SAS is a powerful skill to add to your portfolio.
