NHANES-CMS Linked Data Tutorial

Create SAS-formatted Datasets


This module provides instruction on how to create SAS-formatted datasets from the feasibility  and NHANES data files.

Task 1: Create SAS-formatted Feasibility File

The feasibility files are public use text files and will not open directly into the SAS environment. NCHS has provided a sample SAS program to read in the feasibility files and add labels. Using the provided SAS code, you will create a SAS-formatted dataset.

Task 2: Create SAS-formatted Datasets from the NHANES Data File

Using the steps in the Continuous NHANES Web Tutorial, you will create a SAS-formatted dataset from the NHANES Demographic data file.
