## column + pattern

Some gtsummary tables report multiple statistics in a single cell, e.g. "{mean} ({sd})" in tbl_summary() or tbl_svysummary(). We often need to report just the mean or the SD, and that can be accomplished by using both the column= and pattern= arguments. When both of these arguments are specified, the column argument selects the column to report statistics from, and the pattern argument specifies which statistics to report, e.g. inline_text(x, column = "stat_1", pattern = "{mean}") reports just the mean from a tbl_summary().
