I am trying to use the 2021 ACS 1-Year household-level data sets from https://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/data/pums/2021/1-Year/ within R. However, the majority of the columns are empty when I read in the csv files. Why is that so?
I have listed my example code below. Thank you for any help.
