Getting Started with the Graph Template Language in SAS: Sanjay Matange
You´ve just received a new survey of study results, and you need to quickly create custom graphical views of the data. Or, you´ve completed your analysis, and you need graphs to present the results to your audience, in the style that they prefer. Now, you can create custom graphs quickly and easily with Getting Started with the Graph Template Language in SAS, without having to understand all of the Graph Template Language (GTL) features first. This book will get you started building graphs immediately and will guide you toward a better understanding of the GTL, one step at a time. It shows you the most common approaches to a variety of graphs along with information that you can use to build more complex graphs from there. Sanjay Matange offers expert tips, examples, and techniques, with a goal of providing you with a solid foundation in using the GTL so that you can progress to more sophisticated, adaptable graphs as you need them. Ultimately, Getting Started with the Graph Template Language in SAS allows you to bypass the learning curve. It teaches you how to quickly create custom, aesthetically pleasing graphs that present your data with maximum clarity and minimum clutter.
SAS users in the Health and Life Sciences industry need to create complex graphs to analyze biostatistics data and clinical data, and they need to submit drugs for approval to the FDA. Graphs used in the HLS industry are complex in nature and require innovative usage of the graphics features. Clinical Graphs Using SAS provides the knowledge, the code, and real-world examples that enable you to create common clinical graphs using SAS graphics tools, such as the Statistical Graphics procedures and the Graph Template Language. This book describes detailed processes to create many commonly used graphs in the Health and Life Sciences industry. For SAS 9.3 and SAS 9.4 it covers many improvements in the graphics features that are supported by the Statistical Graphics procedures and the Graph Template Language, many of which are a direct result of the needs of the Health and Life Sciences community. With the addition of new features in SAS 9.4, these graphs become positively easy to create. Topics covered include the usage of SGPLOT procedure, the SGPANEL procedure and the Graph Template Language for the creation of graphs like forest plots, swimmer plots, and survival plots.
