The forwards package provides anonymised data from surveys conducted by Forwards, the R Foundation taskforce on women and other under-represented groups.
You can install forwards from github with:
# install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("forwards/forwards")
The package currently contains a single dataset,
useR2016, with anonymised results from a survey of participants at the useR! 2016 conference. The questions and form of responses are described in the help file (
The dataset is lazy loaded, so after loading the forwards package, the
useR2016 data frame is available for use. For example the following code cross-tabulates respondents' age and length of time using R:
library(forwards) xtabs(~ Q3 + Q11, data = useR2016) #> Q11 #> Q3 < 2 years 2-5 years 5-10 years > 10 years #> > 35 22 27 54 92 #> 35 or under 45 80 72 20
