I’m using the following method to import the labelled data into R for manipulation:
if (!require("ipumsr")) stop("Reading IPUMS data into R requires the ipumsr package. It can be installed using the following command: install.packages('ipumsr')") ddi <- read_ipums_ddi("usa_00003.xml") data <- read_ipums_micro(ddi)
My question is, when I export the table after I have cleaned the it, how could I keep the label instead of the code in the .csv file? For example, I want the output .csv file to show the SEX column as “male”, “female” but now it shows 1 and 2.
