R offer many tools to analyse the univariate or bivariate distribution of series. This includes table and prop.table on base R, and group_by/summarise and count in dplyr. However, these functions are somehow frustrating as some very common tasks, like adding a total or computing relative frequencies or percentage and not counts are not straightforward. Moreover, to our knowledge, R offer weak support for numerical series for which the numerical value is not known at the individual level, but only the fact that this value belongs to a certain class. descstat is intended to provide user-friendly tools to perform these kind of operations. More specifically, three kind of tables can be constructed:

These function are writen in the tidyverse style, which means that the pipe operator can be used and that the series can be provided without quotes.
