Description: GNU R package for the Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX) framework
This package provides a set of classes and methods to read data and metadata
documents exchanged through the Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX)
framework, currently focusing on the SDMX XML standard format (SDMX-ML).
SDMX is an initiative to foster standards for the exchange of statistical
information. It is sponsored by several major providers of statistical
information: the Bank for International Settlements, the European Central
Bank, Eurostat (the statistical office of the European Union), the
International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation
and Development (OECD), the United Nations Statistics Division, the United
Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization and the World Bank.
The package can therefore be used to download statistical information from the
servers of those organizations, and from those of several other institutions.
