Generate correlation matrices with complex survey data in R

The survey package is one of R’s best tools for those working in the
social sciences. For many, it saves you from needing to use commercial
software for research that uses survey data. However, it lacks one
function that many academic researchers often need to report in
publications: correlations. The svycor function in jtools
(more info) helps to
fill that gap.
