Testing of Hypothesis
You should now have an understanding of the basics of SAS and the fundamentals of statistics. You’ve mostly used descriptive statistics to explain the data and get some quick insights without applying any advanced techniques. One advanced technique you’ll learn to apply in this chapter is how to test your hypotheses. Learning how to test a hypothesis is important for analysts because they will use the process in many situations, such as when testing correlation, testing regression coefficients, testing parameter estimates in time-series analysis, testing the goodness of fit in logistic regression, and so on. You’ll learn about those topics in the coming chapters.
