Hello,

I am using Hmisc summary.formula, latex and Sweave to produce tables for publication. Is it possible to change the formats for binary and continuous variables? I would prefer to show 35 (10%) and 1.5 (1.2-1.8) rather than 10% (35) and 1.2 / 1.5 / 1.8. Here is a simple example:

sex <- factor(sample(c("m","f"), 500, rep=TRUE))
age <- rnorm(500, 50, 5)

treatment <- factor(sample(c("Drug","Placebo"), 500, rep=TRUE))

s1 <- summary(~sex + age)

s2 <- summary(treatment ~ sex + age, method="reverse")
print(s1); print(s2)

Descriptive Statistics (N=500)
