I usually use STATA at my practicum, but last week the NPI dataset was too large for (this version of) STATA, so I used SAS for that one. I found some good tutorials online which I would like to share in this post.

**Tutorials List**

I found a great blog called “Listen Data”. This is its SAS Tutorials page:
