Questions for the Census Bureau?


Next week I will be traveling to Washington to meet with someone at the US Census Bureau. While I’ve had several phone calls with people at Census, this will be my first face-to-face meeting with someone who works there.

As you might imagine, I have a long list of things I want to cover! In fact, I’m sure that we won’t be able to cover everything in a single meeting.

One thing I’d like to make time for is questions from the larger R community. At this point several thousand people have taken my free course Learn to Map Census Data in R. And many users of my open source projects also work with Census data.

So if you have any questions about data from the US Census Bureau, or have any documentation or feature requests for their data, feel free to leave them as a comment here. I’ll do my best to pass them along.
