  1. Integrating SAS® and R to Perform Optimal Propensity Score Matching
    Categories: Lucy Papers and Presentations, R, SAS Global Forum 2016
    In studies where randomization is not possible, imbalance in baseline covariates (confounding by indication) is a fundamental concern. Propensity score matching (PSM) is a popular method to minimize this potential bias, matching individuals who received treatment to those who did not to reduce the ..→
  2. Reweighted Regression Models to Estimate County-Level Racial Health Disparities Using PROC GLIMMIX
    Categories: GLIMMIX Procedure, Lucy Papers and Presentations, Presentations, SAS Global Forum 2013
    The agenda to reduce racial health disparities has been set primarily at the national and state levels. These levels may be too far removed from the individual level where health outcomes are realized, and this disconnect may be slowing the progress made in reducing these disparities. This paper ..→
  3. Using PROC GLIMMIX and PROC SGPLOT to Demonstrate County-level Racial Disparities in Obesity in North Carolina
    Categories: GLIMMIX Procedure, Lucy Papers and Presentations, NESUG 2013, Presentations, SGPLOT Procedure
    The agenda to reduce racial health disparities has been set primarily at the national and state levels. These levels may be too far removed from the individual level where health outcomes are realized. This disconnect may be slowing the progress in reducing these disparities. Behavioral Risk ..→
  4. Using PROC SURVEYREG and PROC SURVEYLOGISTIC to Assess Potential Bias
    Categories: Lucy Papers and Presentations, Presentations, SAS Global Forum 2015, SURVEYLOGISTIC Procedure, SURVEYREG Procedure
    The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) collects data on health practices and risk behaviors via telephone survey. This study focuses on the question, “On average, how many hours of sleep do you get in a 24-hour period?” Recall bias is a potential concern in interviews and ..→
  5. Using SAS/STAT® Software to Validate a Health Literacy Prediction Model in a Primary Care Setting
    Categories: LOGISTIC Procedure, Lucy Papers and Presentations, SAS/STAT, SAS Global Forum 2014
    Existing health literacy assessment tools developed for research purposes have constraints that limit their feasibility for use in clinical settings. The measurement of health literacy in clinical practice can be impractical due to the staff burden and time requirements of existing assessment ..→
