SAS Melbourne Users Group (SMUG) Would like to invite YOU to their next meeting on Thursday 11th May 2000 at the SAS Melbourne Training Centre - Level 7, 438 St. Kilda Road


2:00pm Welcome and Introduction

2:10pm Looking for Patterns and Segments With a Cross-tab Report. - Dr. Tony Wohlers, Statistical Investigations. A cross-tab report is a common way of summarising data with categorical variables. In it the rows and columns correspond to values of these variables, so that the body of the report contain frequencies or percentages of data with a given combination of row and column values. In his talk we will look at a technique (correspondence analysis), which when applied to a cross-tab report allows you to visualise patterns (or associations) in your data and identify sub-groups (segments). The relevant SAS code and PROCs will be discussed and demonstrated.

2:40pm Don't print your reports on paper, publish them to the web !- John Savoria, SAS Institite Stop wasting paper and start taking advantage of the new SAS features for publishing static reports. A discussion on transferring physical reporting to electronic reporting, using Enterprise Reporter and the Internet at a customer site. The current reports are SAS and Crystal Reports. Taking an existing batch job and rapidly converting the code to allow for electronic delivery was easy. Production cost was minimal and the saving was large in both time and cost, as the client was used to sending files to printer and receiving the reports 2-3 weeks later.
