Re: [R] "xtable" results doesn't correspond to data.frame

That table below is not the table from your first mail.

However I would do something like:

library(xtable)
testdata<-data.frame(gender=c(rep("male",3),rep("female",4)) testtab<-as.data.frame(table(testdata))
pct<-function(x){
  x/sum(x)*100
  }
testtab$percent<-pct(testtab$Freq)

rownames(testtab)<-c(1,2)
colnames(testtab)<-c("gender","Freq","%")

#it looks like:

testtab

#and latex:

xtable(testtab,digits=2)

% latex table generated in R 2.5.0 by xtable 1.4-6 package % Wed Jun 20 18:25:22 2007
\begin{table}[ht]
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{rlrr}
  \hline
 & gender & Freq & \% \\
  \hline
1 & female & 3 & 42.86 \\
  2 & male & 4 & 57.14 \\
   \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
\end{table}

I hope this is now how expected.

Cheers
Stefan
