Simulating data is a common tool data scientists and analysts use often.  Model selection can depend on the distribution of the data. Being able to simulate large data sets quickly is a great way to solve this problem. We'll dive deeper into data simulation in SAS Bowl XXXVI.   Game Details The SAS Support Community trivia event, SAS Bowl XXXVI, Data Simulation is scheduled for Wednesday, December 13, at 10 a.m. ET. Register for the event and receive an invite to a Microsoft Teams meeting and a calendar event. On game day, join the Teams meeting and access the game here.   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. Simulation SAS blog posts - @Rick_SAS has written a book on the subject; much of the material can be found in his blog posts 10 Tips for Simulating Data With SAS - SAS Ask the Expert Webinar by @Rick_SAS  Use SAS to Quickly Simulate and Graph Data from Different Distributions - Communities article by @BethEbersole  - there's a complimentary video as well Creating Simulated Data Sets - SAS Users blog post by @Ron_Cody - there's a part 2 as well Using SAS Viya to Simulate Data -  a short video on simulating data in SAS Viya   SAS Bowl and event details For those who may be new to the SAS Bowl, you can find game history and specifics in this Community memo. There you'll also find links to previous events, which include recordings.   Register for the event and receive an invite with game details and a Teams meeting link. On game day, Join the TEAMS meeting to play, and show off your SAS and worldly knowledge while competing for bragging rights and SAS Community game gear.
