acs version 2.1.4: now on CRAN

Posted by Ezra Glenn on February 20, 2019

Due to some pesky api address changes at the Census, we’ve updated the acs package with yet another quick patch. Pretty much everything should work the same — no improvements, just a fix to allow you to get data that wasn’t fetching. No other aspects of the package were changed with this release.

1 Downloading and installing

To install the updated version, simply fire up an R session and type:

> install.packages("acs", clean=T)
> acs.tables.install()

If you’re updating from a previous version, don’t forget to re-install or “api.key.migrate()” your api key if it doesn’t seem to have been migrated during install. We also strongly recommend you run “acs.tables.install()” as well – you only need to do this once per installation (or update), and it will really speed up the package.
