Analyzing 2020 Decennial US Census Data in R
February 22, 2024 12-3 PM EST
In 2023, the US Census Bureau released several long-awaited datasets from the 2020 Decennial US Census. These datasets include the Demographic and Housing Characteristics (DHC) file, which provides unprecedented insights into the age and sex structure of the US population; the Detailed DHC-A file, which breaks down these characteristics for hundreds of ethnic groups; and data for the new 118th US Congress. This workshop will show participants how to use, analyze, and map these datasets in R with tidycensus and related tools.
