Learning SAS: Creating Formats and Labels

SAS (Statistical Analysis System) is a powerful software suite used for data analysis, statistical modeling, and business intelligence. One key aspect of SAS programming is the ability to control the appearance of data values through the use of formats and labels. Formats and labels allow you to present your data in a clear and meaningful way, making it easier to understand and interpret.

Labels, on the other hand, are used to add descriptive text to variables, making it easier to understand the meaning of each variable in a dataset.
