Census, Code / Comments Off on Presenting acs.R at the ACS Data User Conference

On May 12, 2015, I’ll be presenting the acs.R package in a session of the American Community Survey Data User Group Conference in Hyattsville, MD. The paper, titled “Estimates with errors and errors with estimates: Using the R ‘acs’ package for analysis of American Community Survey data,” is available through the SSRN or my faculty publications webpage.

Better yet, the session will also include a presentation by Michael Laviolette, Dennis Holt, and Kristin K. Snow of the State of New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services on “Using the R Language and ‘acs’ Package to Compile and Update a Social Vulnerability Index for New Hampshire.” It’s great to see how planners are using and extending this package in all sorts of exciting new settings and applications.
