ropercenter: Reproducible Data Retrieval from the Roper Center Data Archive

Reproducible, programmatic retrieval of datasets from the Roper Center data archive. The Roper Center for Public Opinion Research <> maintains the largest archive of public opinion data in existence, but researchers using these datasets are caught in a bind. The Center's terms and conditions bar redistribution of downloaded datasets, but to ensure that one's work can be reproduced, assessed, and built upon by others, one must provide access to the raw data one employed. The 'ropercenter' package cuts this knot by providing registered users with programmatic, reproducible access to Roper Center datasets from within R.
