A SAS dataset consists of columns of variables and rows of observations. Variables correspond to characteristics of the data that are documented for all of the observations.

For example, the rows or observations in your data set might represent people, and the columns in your data set would contain characteristics about the people like gender, age, height, weight.

In a SAS dataset, variables themselves have five important properties: name, type, length, format, and label.
