Reproducible research refers to analyses published with both source data and code so that others can easily verify the findings and build upon them. The SBA Office of Advocacy's Small Business Profiles is an annual report on the state of America's small businesses. Its reproducible 2016 redesign illustrates why now is the time for researchers to begin using the tools of reproducibility. The languages of R, Knitr, LATEX, and Markdown make calling government APIs, repeating analyses, and embracing aesthetic principles straightforward and easy. The suggested workflow offers a template for future researchers who want to meet the highest standards in transparency and aesthetics while efficiently managing their resources.
