SAS Statistical Analysis Software Version 913 SP4 Portable


SAS Statistical Analysis Software Version 9.1.3 SP4 Portable




SAS is a software suite that provides advanced analytics, business intelligence, data management, and predictive analytics. SAS is widely used for statistical analysis, data mining, machine learning, and business applications in various domains such as finance, health care, education, and government. SAS can run on different platforms, such as Windows, Linux, Unix, and Mac OS. However, installing SAS on a computer requires a license and a large amount of disk space.


Fortunately, there is a portable version of SAS that can run from a USB flash drive or an external hard drive without installation or license. This version is called SAS Statistical Analysis Software Version 9.1.3 SP4 Portable (SAS Portable for short). SAS Portable is based on the SAS System 9.1.3 Service Pack 4 (SP4), which was released in 2006. SAS Portable has most of the features and procedures of the original SAS System 9.1.3 SP4, except for some graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and some components that require installation or license. SAS Portable can be used for educational and personal purposes only, not for commercial or professional purposes.

How to Download and Install SAS Portable




To download and install SAS Portable, you need to follow these steps:


  • Download the SAS Portable zip file from [this link]. The file size is about 1.2 GB.



  • Extract the zip file to a USB flash drive or an external hard drive with at least 2 GB of free space. You can use any unzip software such as WinRAR or 7-Zip.

How to Use SAS Portable




To use SAS Portable, you need to have some basic knowledge of SAS syntax and programming. You can refer to the [SAS documentation] or the [SAS online tutorials] for more information. Here are some tips on how to use SAS Portable:


  • You can access the SAS data sets and programs that are included in the zip file by using the LIBNAME and FILENAME statements with the path "C:\SASPortable\". For example, to access the data set CARS in the library SASHELP, you can use the statement LIBNAME sashelp "C:\SASPortable\SASHELP";



  • You can create your own data sets and programs by using the DATA and PROC steps as usual. However, you need to specify the path "C:\SASPortable\" in the OUT= or FILE= options to save them in the USB flash drive or external hard drive. For example, to create a data set named MYDATA with two variables X and Y, you can use the statement DATA mydata (OUT="C:\SASPortable\MYDATA");



  • You can run your own programs by using the %INCLUDE statement with the path "C:\SASPortable\". For example, to run a program named MYPGM.sas that is saved in the USB flash drive or external hard drive, you can use the statement %INCLUDE "C:\SASPortable\MYPGM.sas";



  • You can view the output of your programs by using the ODS HTML statement with the path "C:\SASPortable\".
