Example: Reading a SAS Data Set
The data set Cert.Admit contains health information about patients in a clinic, their activity level, height, and weight. Suppose you want to create a subset of the data. Specifically, you want to create a small data set containing data about all the men in the group who are older than 50.
To create the data set, you must first reference the library in which Cert.Admit is stored. Then you must specify the name of the library in which you want to store the Males data set. Finally, you add statements to the DATA step to read your data and create a new data set.
The DATA step below reads all observations and variables from the existing data set Cert.Admit into ...
