Referring to Variables in Processing Data is Different in SAS Compared to R

When doing data processing, especially extract-transform-load (ETL) into a data warehouse, you might need to refer to the variables in your code, and it's done differently in SAS vs. R.

Referring to variables in processing is different conceptually when thinking about SAS compared to R. I explain the differences in my blog post.

Native Formats in SAS and R for Data Are Different: Here’s How!

Why use particular data formats for different programming languages in statistics? Because the programs can then process the data faster and with more accuracy.

Native formats in SAS and R of data objects have different qualities – and there are reasons behind these differences. Learn about them in this blog post!
