How I use SAS in my career: I began using SAS as a research tool in the early 80’s when I was working on a project at the Johnson Space Center. Since then, I have used it to teach statistics, measurement and research design courses at the University of Houston. I and my staff currently use SAS to maintain several dozen databases from a variety of research projects. We analyze the data primarily using SAS although sometimes we use other products. The results of these analyses are published in the scientific literature.
