I’m pleased to announce the release of haven 1.1.0. Haven is designed to faciliate the transfer of data between R and SAS, SPSS, and Stata. It makes it easy to read SAS, SPSS, and Stata file formats in to R data frames, and makes it easy to save your R data frames in to SPSS and Stata if you need to collaborate with others using closed source statistical software.
Install the latest version by running:
haven 1.1.0 is a small release that fixes a bunch of smaller issues. See the release notes for full details. The most important bug was ensuring that
read_sav() once again correctly returns system defined missings as NA (rather than NaN). Other highlights include:
Preliminary support for reading and writing SAS transport files with
read_sas()that allows you to read only selected columns.
An update to the bundled ReadStat code, fixing many smaller reading and writing bugs.
Better checks in
write_dta()making it more likely that you’ll get a clear error in R instead of producing an invalid file.
