[R] Variable and value labels

This is very general, and it also depends on the scientific domain.
Factors do solve the value labels, but they drop the (original) values.
They also lose the connection to the different types of missing values (an
important topic in the social sciences).

Base R provides as much as it can, but it cannot possibly cover all
applications out there, so an add-on package is a must.
A good way to do both variable and value labels, as well as different types
of missing values, is the package "declared".

I hope this helps,
