I'm looking for help please.
I'm working with transactional data and looking for a way to find associations within transactions that will generate rules to assist our buying team, it's market basket analysis. The problem is I have SAS base and not SAS Miner, however I do have Enterprise guide 4 but at present not configured!
I gather from a little bit of research proc assoc and proc rulegen were procedures that allowed you to generate exactly what I'm after, e.g. If a customer buys shoes, then 10% of the time he also buys socks. A grocery chain may find that 80% of all shoppers are apt to buy a jar of salsa when they also purchase a bag of tortilla chips. When "do-it-yourselfers" buy latex paint they, also buy rollers 85% of the time. Forty percent of investors holding an equity index fund will have a growth fund in their portfolio.
Does anyone know what happened to these functions and why I can't use them anymore and if there's another workaround please?
Thanks and any help is much appreciated!
