Provides functions to generate tables of descriptive statistics for continuous and nominal variables, as well as some further data manipulation functions. These functions are especially helpful when writing reports of data analysis using Sweave.
At the beginning of data analysis, it is often useful to have tables of descriptive values for continuous and nominal variables available. This package provides such functions, where the output is a LaTeX table. The functions are most efficiently used when generating reports combining LaTeX with R via Sweave.
I thank Daniel Sabanes-Bove, Sarah Haile, Philipp Muri, Patrich McCormick, and Sina Rueeger for helpful discussions and remarks.
