SAS & Enterprise Miner

SAS (Statistical Analysis System) is an integrated suite of modular products facilitating four data-driven tasks – data access, data management, data analysis, and data presentation.
SAS supports SQL (Structured Query Language), and can subset and merge a wide range of data sources. SAS software computes simple descriptive statistics, and complicated and highly specialized statistical and econometric analyses. These include regression, planning, simulation, forecasting, quality improvement, project management, decision support, and more. In addition, SAS software produces reports that range from a simple listing of a data set to customized reports of complex relationships.
SAS Enterprise Miner streamlines the data mining process to create highly accurate predictive and descriptive models based on analysis of vast amounts of data.


The Linux version of SAS is available to Stern faculty and PhD students on the Stern GRID. The Windows version of SAS is available for use by students via web browser through the NYU Virtual Computer Lab.
Licenses and software for the installation of Windows versions of SAS are available for purchase by NYU faculty, staff, and matriculated graduate students through the NYU Computer Store.
