We are a team working on a prospective psychological study. The study design is based on assessing data of three generations of humans over a long time period, wherein epidemiological as well as biological data will be assessed. Sample sizes will range from about 100 to several thousand depending on the research question.  

Currently we are looking for an apropriate statistical package. Here are some features that the software should have:
- strong in the analysis of epidemiological and longitudinal data

As we had some problems in finding information concerning these items we would like to ask you where we might find it (if at all) and why R is presumably the best competitor and why?  

Thanks in advance for any suggestions concerning this!
