The package currently contains a single dataset,

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
