Alternatives and Extensions

As you already know, for each base-R operation, there are user-contributed alternatives. This video demonstrates the function describe from the package psych, which outputs more statistics than the standard function summary. (You already know how to install and load the package to your R environment.) Be careful, as user-contributed packages might use the same names for their functions. For example, the package Hmisc also has a function describe that produces a different output.
