Redesigning the Nonprofit Sector in Brief in R

A new era for NCCS

And a new Nonprofit Sector in Brief

How we did it

Parameterized output

NCCSDataYr: 2015
Figure1_2015 <- Fig1Table(2015)
Figure1_2015 <- Fig1Table(params$NCCSDataYr)
From `r params$NCCSDataYr-10` to `r params$NCCSDataYr`, the number of nonprofit organizations registered with the IRS rose from `r round(Table1_2015[1,2]/1000000,2)` million to `r round(Table1_2015[1,6]/1000000,2)` million, an increase of `r Table1_2015[1,7]` percent.

…and to save the results of analysis
