NOTE: The pxweb R package has been temporarily removed from CRAN. We are working on the issue (as of 5/2018), and wish to have it back in CRAN soon. Meanwhile, you can install the Github development version as follows:
In some cases, the organization requires manual proxy settings. This can be set as follows:
library(devtools) library(httr) set_config( use_proxy(url="organizationProxyURL", port=1234) ) install_github('ropengov/pxweb')
Overview of pxweb R package
pxweb is an R package to interface with the PX-WEB API, and it offers methods to utilize information about the data hierarchy stored behind the PX-WEB API used by Statistics authorities in Finland, Sweden and many other countries. Many API services are still in their early stages, and data quality is sometimes compromised. Issue reports are welcome.
For installation and usage, check the tutorial page.
