compareGroups: Descriptive Analysis by Groups

Read, interpret, summarise, display and analyse epidemiological data. Can be used to create data summaries for quality control, extensive reports for exploring data, including publication-ready univariate or bivariate tables in plain text HTML and LaTeX, and a figures to quickly visualise the distribution of your data. Depending on the nature of the variable, various statistics are calculated (mean, median, frequencies, incidences) and appropriate tests are performed (t-test, Analysis of variance, Kruskal-Wallis, Fisher, log-rank, ...). The latest version includes functionality for summarising genetic data, and for performing low-level quality control of your database (see radiograph()) to help identify data-entry errors. This version has also been implemented in a web-interface to make this package accessible to non-R-users.
