# SAS procedures to produce descriptive statistics and p-values

posted in: Research Paper | 0
• Please employ appropriate SAS procedures to produce descriptive statistics and p-values that would allow you to fill in the table below.
• Use the Dataset EPI626_Assign6_F2019.
• Descriptive statistics
• For normally distributed continuous variables, present mean and standard deviation. For continuous variables that are not normally distributed, present median and IQR.
• For categorical variables, present number (count) and proportion (%).
• Hint: You may have to recode some of the categorical variables.
• P-values
• If comparing means from two groups, use T-test
• If comparing means from three groups, use ANOVA.
• If comparing distribution of non-normally distributed continuous variables, use non-parametric tests.
• If comparing proportions from two or more groups, choose between Chi-Square or Fisher’s Exact test, depending on expected cell sizes.
• Hint: you will have to recode age from a continuous variable into a categorical variable.
• Fill in the number of observations in each age group at the top of the table.N = (???)
• Please submit SAS code, log, and output.
• SAS program should have the following components:
• Checking distribution
• Producing descriptive statistics
• Producing p-values
• Please fill out the table below and submit this word file.
 Age Group £ 25 Years N = () >25 Years N = () P-value Gender, N (%)* Female Male Left Handed, N (%)* Yes No Height, Mean (SD)**

*% out of total in each age group

**SD refers to standard deviation
