Dear useRs,

I am pleased to announce the availability of version 0.95 of package 'memisc' on CRAN (http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/memisc/).

'memisc' does not implement any new estimators, but focuses on providing an infrastructure for data analysis especially of survey data. It may be of interest to all those who have had to use a commercial package like SPSS or Stata in order to prepare data for analysis in R. I wrote this package to become independent from commercial software and to do everything in R, from data management to data analysis and presentation of analysis results. I hope that the package will be as useful for others as it has become for me. UseRs may want to check out the vignette "Analysing the American National Election Study of 1948" to see the package in action.

Feedback is more than welcome. Please to do not hesitate to inform me if you find any bugs in this package.

All the best,
