Data on the States and Counties of the United States
Demographic data on the United States at the county and state levels spanning multiple years.
This package contains demographic data on the United States at the county and state levels. The data span multiple years. Sources include the US Census, the American Community Survey, data distributed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, etc.
You can install the package from CRAN with:
Additionally, you can install the development version of usdata from GitHub with:
#install.packages("devtools") library(devtools) install_github("OpenIntroStat/usdata")
The datasets from this package can be used in a teaching context for data visualization and data manipulation exercises as well as for modeling. Since data spans multiple years it’s also possible to use these data to explore trends in the US over time.
usdata and openintro
The datasets from this package are used in
OpenIntro textbooks and other resources.
These datasets originally lived in the
openintro package, up
until openintro 2.0.0. The motivation for extracting these datasets out
of the openintro package was to create a new package where we can
continue to add more data on the US at the state and county levels. For
those looking for a seamless experience with OpenIntro resources, note
that the contents of this package will be loaded along with the
openintro package as well, so that you can run
use the datasets from usdata.
Questions, bugs, feature requests
You can file an issue to get help, report a bug, or make a feature request.
When filing an issue to get help or report a bug, please make a minimal reproducible example using the reprex package. If you haven’t heard of or used reprex before, you’re in for a treat! See here for additional reprex pointers.
Before opening a new issue, be sure to search issues and pull
requests to make sure
the bug hasn’t been reported and/or already fixed in the development
version. By default, the search will be pre-populated with
is:open. You can edit the
is:closed) as needed. For example, you’d simply remove
is:open to search all issues in the repository, open or closed.
