This means that the library haven is not found in your current library paths

  • check .libPaths() to see the current lib paths
  • use find.package("haven") to see if the package installation folder is found

You may try to reinstall the package and check the installation is correct.

Welcome to the community!

When you try to install a package, the function used is install.packages, not installed.packages. The latter can be used to get details of the packages which are already installed.

Try to install by install.packages("haven", dependencies = TRUE), and then try to lead it using library(haven).
