#' Arrange estimate and MOE
#'
#' Neatly arrange estimate and margin of error columns, such that each estimate column is followed by a column with the corresponding margin of error.
#'
#' @param .data A tbl.
#' @param omit An integer or vector of integers corresponding to the position of the column(s) that shouldn't be rearranged. Intended use case is where first 1-2 columns are characters such as names and counties. Defaults to 1.
#'
#' @return Returns a tbl, making it useful in dplyr chaining
#' @export
