In this video we used two different data sources:
US 2020 Census Self-Response: This dataset is a version of the US Census shapefiles modified for comparing self-response rates between 2010 and 2020. There’s an overview of why this dataset exists here and the zip can be downloaded here.
read_sf()function can be used to import all of the most commonly used shapefile formats.
