You might look at the summary method in Dr. Harrell's Hmisc package, I believe this would give you almost exactly what you want.

latex(summary(gender ~ age + bmi, data=yourdata, method='reverse'))

This will get you quartiles, but if you read the documentation (?summary.formula) you can see how to create custom summaries.

Subject: [R] Using PrettyR to produce LaTeX output

Hello everyone. I am new to R, so please bear with me. I am trying to find an easy way to export descriptive statistics and other information about my data frame to a LaTeX format.

I have found the describe function in PrettyR to be very helpful in producing results in the exact format I'm looking for. However, the value of the describe function is a LIST (rather than a data frame) which I am then unable to convert to LaTeX using the xtable package or the latex function of Hmisc. When I try to convert the list to a data frame, I get an error that says "arguments imply differing number of rows."

If that didn't make any sense...ultimately, here is what I'm trying (and failing) to produce as a LaTeX document...

                                 MALES                       FEMALES
                        Q10     Med    Q90            Q10    Med   Q90
AGE                   xx        xx       xx              xx       xx      xx
BMI                   xx        xx        xx             xx        xx
xx
etc.                   xx        xx        xx             xx        xx
xx

Any help or guidance would be appreciated! Thank you in advanced!

J.
