Om boka

Analyzing Health Data in R for SAS Users is aimed at helping health data analysts who use SAS accomplish some of the same tasks in R. It is targeted to public health students and professionals who have a background in biostatistics and SAS software, but are new to R.

Provides exercise questions and answers at the end of each chapter











Uses examples from the publicly available dataset, Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) 2014 data
