    • Recommended: Restart R at least once before the workshop begins.
# Install any necessary packages if not already installed 

 pkg in c(
   "tidyverse", "ipumsr", "sf", "terra", "ggspatial", "gtools",
   "srvyr", "survey", "lme4", "broom.mixed", "broom", "remotes"
){if(!require(pkg, quietly = TRUE, character.only = TRUE)){install.packages(pkg)}}

# Install a development version of `ggspatial` that plots raster data from `terra`
