There are two basic ways of creating tables in Displayr. A table can be created using an R Output or by dragging and dropping onto a Page from the Data Tree.

Creating tables

Summary tables

When a Variable Set is dragged from the Data Tree a Summary Table is created. Summary tables can contain multiple statistics, such as both percentages and counts, and that they can also be one or two-dimensional in terms of the data that they represent (this is determined by the Variable Set Structure, as described below).


A crosstab is created when a second Variable Set is dragged onto a Summary Table.

R Output tables

Tables can also be created using R code (see R Output). Note that this type of table is ultimately an R Output and is qualitatively different to summary tables and crosstabs (e.g., you can sort this type of table by clicking on the column headings).

The appearance of a table is governed by:

R Output tables
