In this class you will learn how to use R with the tidycensus and tidyverse packages to explore and visualize US Census data.

tidycensus is an R package that allows users to interface with the US Census Bureau’s decennial Census and five-year American Community APIs and return tidyverse-ready data frames, optionally with simple feature geometry included. tidycensus is designed to help R users get Census data that is pre-prepared for exploration within the tidyverse, and optionally spatially with the sf package.

If your work involves the use of data from the US Census Bureau and would like to use R to explore, manipulate, and visualize these datasets, the tidycensus and tidyverse packages are great tools for accomplishing these tasks. Beyond this, the sf package now allows R users to work with spatial data in an integrated way with tidyverse tools, and updates to the tigris package provide access to Census boundary data as sf objects.
