GUI Tool for Data Management like SPSS or Stata

R is very powerful but it lacks some of the functionalities found in Stata or SPSS to manage survey data. The 'memisc' package provides these (variable labels, value labels, definable missing values and so on), but to efficiently work these functions need a graphical interface to allow the user to get an overview of the data. This package provides such a graphical interface, similar in fashion to SPSS's Variable View and data managing system. It uses the 'memisc' package as its backend. Additionally, 'Rz' has a powerful plot assistant interface based on 'ggplot2'.
