Lifecycle: experimental CRAN status Travis build status Codecov test coverage

The goal of ‘usa’ is to provide updated versions of the ‘datasets’ objects included with R. When attached, this package overwrites these original vectors with information on all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. As of now, information on the other territories are provided in separate objects.

Installation

You can install the development version of ‘usa’ from GitHub with:

# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("kiernann/usa")

Base Data

R ships with eight outdated objects in the ‘datasets’ package: 7 vectors and a matrix of statistics from the 1970’s.
