Hi all - new user of IPUMS here (and sorry if this is a repost).
I’m using IPUMS USA for a data project, and I’m encountering an error when trying to read my data into R. I’m using the following code (per the training exercises/other user posts)
ddi <- read_ipums_ddi(“usa_00008.dat”)
data <- read_ipums_micro(ddi)
And getting a the following error “Start tag expected, ‘<’ not found .” I’ve decompressed my data file from a dat.gz -> .dat, and I’ve downloaded the data into my working directory. If anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be appreciated!
