More on Data Simulation

SAS enables you to quickly create large data sets drawn from different distributions. Understanding the distribution is key to knowing your data and selecting your best modeling options. But data simulation takes planning. You want to follow best practices and create efficient simulations and avoid programming pitfalls.


Here are a few resources you can review for the game.

I'm having trouble registering for this- Chrome just takes me to a blank page, and Edge pops up a page on what to do when Teams doesn't load.  I've followed the instructions for adding sites allowed to save and read cookie data on both browsers, but the browsers are both managed by my company, so I can't make any other changes regarding third-party cookies.  Any suggestions?




Hi Nancy, in cases like this I just use my private laptop. Maybe even a mobile might work.

Best Regards
