You can install and load tab from GitHub via the following code:
The main purpose of tab is to create neatly formatted summary tables for papers and presentations. The following functions are included:
glm_v prints a GLM summary table to the RStudio Viewer
tabglm summarizes generalized linear models (GLM’s) fit via
tabgee summarizes generalized estimating equation models (GEE’s) fit via
tabcoxph summarizes Cox Proportional Hazards models fit via
tabmulti compares variables across two or more groups, e.g. to create a “Table 1”
tabmulti.svy does the same thing as
tabmulti but for complex survey data
To summarize a fitted generalized linear model, simply call
glm_v as you would
glm. The result will be a formatted summary table printed to the RStudio Viewer. Here’s an example for logistic regression:
From here, you can “snip” the summary table and save it as a figure (as I did for this README) or copy directly from the Viewer and paste outside of R.
For more flexibility, see
tabglm. That function lets you control things like what columns to present, how categorical predictors are presented, and so on.
You can use
tabmulti to summarize variables across two or more groups, using a formula interface. Here’s an example:
The functions all return
kable objects, so they should work perfectly well in R Markdown and knitr documents.
