[ANN] Introducing ReadStatTables.jl for loading Stata, SAS and SPSS files

I am glad to announce that the first release of ReadStatTables.jl is now available via the General registry.

ReadStatTables.jl relies on ReadStat.jl. It adds the following features on top of the read support from ReadStat.jl.

  • A lightweight Tables.jl-compatible column table ReadStatTable for basic operations.
  • Integration of value labels via a customized array type LabeledArray.
  • Translation of date and time values into Julia time types Date and DateTime.

It can be viewed as an alternative to StatFiles.jl for end-users.

For details on usage, please see the documentation.
