How can I convert SAS data files into something simple like CSV data?

There are government data files available from this CDC web site, but they are in a weird SAS format.

"StatTransfer will convert SAS files to a variety of formats and it includes options to filter variables or observations, customize the delimiter, and change variable storage formats during the transfer.

AM will also covert data, but it's less powerful/flexible. AM is freeware and written for Windows."

"SAS Institute (the company that makes SAS) produces a viewer for SAS data sets.

Note that SAS program files usually have the extension .sas, whereas the data files themselves usually have the extension .sas7bdat."
