Are you learning SAS Base? 

In my ten+ years of working with SAS I've never heard a specific term 'sanity check'. My interpretation of that, is: "Stop, check your results. Do they make logical sense?"

 

And I have never seen "sanity check" on a resume.

Sanity check is a high level word that project managers and business stakeholders might use. Anything in a system can be checked: data, programs, structure, documentation, processes and so on. It's not a specific thing.

Could this possibly be a translation issue? Jargon or "buzzword" terms may not translate well word by word.

Look up the expression in Wikipedia

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanity_check

 

I guess it means checking for obvious errors, such as negative ages or heartbeat rates over 1000, etc.
