The easiest way to use pxweb is to simply install it from CRAN:

install.packages('pxweb')

To get the latest stabile development version use:

library(devtools)
install_github('ropengov/pxweb')

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 PXWEB API used by many Statistics authorities. 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/vignette.
