Statistical Analysis System (SAS) is a statistical and information system that performs sophisticated data management and statistical analysis. It is used in academic research, academic administration, and in private industry across disciplines.
SAS offers free software in two versions:
- University Edition software which can be installed on a Mac, PC, or Linux system by running inside a VirtualBox VM
- OnDemand for Academics, which runs directly in your web browser
In either case, SAS will walk you through creating a SAS Profile if you do not already have one.
