Recording of my Talk at the ACS Data Users Conference

August 28, 2017

I recently had the honor of speaking at the 2017 American Community Survey (ACS) Data Users Conference. My talk focused on choroplethr, the suite of R packages I’ve written for mapping open datasets in R. The ACS is the one of the main surveys that the US Census Bureau runs, and I was honored to share my work there.

My talk was recorded, and you can view it below:

Attending the conference was part of my effort to bridge the gap between the world of free data analysis tools (i.e. the R community) and the world of government datasets (which I consider the most interesting datasets around).

The conference was great. I have been meaning to write a blog post summarizing what I learned, but I simply haven’t had the time. Instead, I will point you to a recording of all the conference talks.
