Automatic generation of codebooks from dataframes.

Project description


Automatically generate codebooks from dataframes. Includes methods to:

  • Infer variable type (as unique key, indicator, categorical, or continuous).
  • Summarize values with histograms and KDEs.
  • Generate a self-contained HTML report (may be extended to PDF or other formats in the future).


codebooks -o output.html input.csv

Adding variable descriptions

You can specify a csv file that maps variable names to descriptions using:

codebooks --desc descriptions.csv -o output.html input.csv

The csv file is expected to have two columns (variable name, description).
