Need a guide to using SAS to carry out non-parametric analysis? SAS COMPANION FOR NONPARAMETRIC STATISTICS provides an excellent knowlege base and provides examples you can use to practice using the program. All SAS examples presented are self-contained and can be entered into SAS as they appear, and executed. Thus, you don't have to deal with issues of creating SAS data sets before using the programs. In addition to presenting the SAS code to obtain various nonparametric analyses, brief introductions to the methods themselves are provided. Particular attention is given to how SAS calculates the results it presents.
