slu-openGIS/cityHealth: Provides Tidy Versions of the CDC's 500 Cities Project Data

Working with the original 500 Cities Project data present a number of practical challenges. Each release is nearly 228 megabytes in size (approaching half a gigabyte for both together). The full releases contain data from multiple observational units as well as numerous variables that contain metadata that can be stored more efficiently in other formats. cityHealth provides "tidy" versions of the CDC's data in a format readily accessible to R at a fraction of the footprint.
