A few weeks ago I announced my latest project: Data Science instruction at the Census Bureau.

In addition to announcing the project, I also snuck a bit of market research into the post. I asked people the types of analyses they do when working with Census data. I also asked what packages they use when solving those problems.

23 people left comments, and they have been very helpful in shaping the curriculum of the course. Thank you to everyone who left a comment!

That was such an effective way to learn about the community of R Census users that I’ve decided to do it again. If you are an R programmer who has worked with Census data, please leave a comment with an answer to this question:

What is your biggest problem when working with Census data in R?

Understanding the obstacles people face has the potential to help us design better courses.
