Generate Descriptive Statistics & Explore Statistical Distributions

Generate descriptive statistics such as measures of location, dispersion, frequency tables, cross tables, group summaries and multiple one/two way tables. Visualize and compute percentiles/probabilities of normal, t, f, chi square and binomial distributions.


The goal of descriptr is to ease the process of generating descriptive statistics and exploring statistical distributions.

# the development version from github

The following functions are available for generating descriptive statistics:

  • summary_stats
  • cross_table
  • freq_table
  • freq_cont
  • group_summary
