SAS is feature-rich integrated software for working with data that dates back to the 1960s. Developers and average users tend to think of SAS as a platform that makes a great many data processing actions possible. The SAS environment has its own distinct objects and a conceptual framework, leading to hundreds of terms of art that SAS users need to know to discuss the intricacies of SAS. Global Statements Dictionary was created to provide easy access to these definitions, along with those of other computer concepts that tend to turn up in SAS work.
Global Statements Dictionary came to Wikidot from Global Statements. It was originally created by combining parts of the the glossary of Professional SAS Programming Logic with the "List of SAS Words" from Professional SAS Programmer's Pocket Reference. Part of this material ultimately derives from the original 1991 edition of Professional SAS Programming Secrets.
