Today I am delighted to announce an exciting new collaboration. I will be working with the US Census Bureau as a Data Science Instructor!

Over the next six months I will be helping Census develop courses on using R to work with Census Data. These courses will be free and open to the public. People familiar with my open source work will realize that this project is right up my alley!

As a start to this project I am trying to gather two pieces of information:

- Which packages do R programmers typically use when working with Census data?
- What types of analyses do R programmers typically do with Census data?

If you use R to work with Census data, please leave an answer below!
