Is there an explanation for all of the data sets in the sashelp library?

 

Hello Sas Addicts,

Subject pretty much says it all.  I am looking to get some experience with modelling, and data manipulation, and I was wondering if there's a reference with explanations for these data sets?  Of couse some are pretty self explanatory, but others leave me uncertain.

Also, I'm looking to get some experience with generalized linear models, any recommended data sets for that?

Have you taken a look at the first two SAS courses, one is on programming and on is statistical?

There isn't a ton of information that I can find:

http://support.sas.com/documentation/tools/sashelpug.pdf

https://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/stat/131/sashelp.pdf

 

There's better datasets within each PROC's examples section, with the code and data available here:

Ok, thank you.  I am enrolled in both online courses. 

Also, what about the maps data that is included in SAS studio?  Are there any whorthwhile tasks to attempt there?

Sure. Look into PROC geocode as well as check out robslink.com for graphing examples.
