saros: Semi-Automatic Reporting of Ordinary Surveys

Produces highly customized reports, primarily intended for survey research. Building on 'Quarto' (<>), it generates draft chapters of all specified dependent/independent variables, which can be further edited by hand, containing figures, tables and analyses (currently only uni-/bivariate tests of equivalent means/proportions). The feature 'mesos'-reports offer tailor-made batch report production where e.g. an institution can compare itself to all other participants. Publication tools are also included, such as password generation for 'mesos'-report sections on a 'Quarto' Website.
