An R package for downloading CSO data.

The csodata package allows for easily downloading CSO (Central Statistics Office, the statistics agency of Ireland) PxStat data into R. It also includes multiple functions for examining the metadata of CSO tables, as well as a function to download geographic data in the ESRI vector format from the CSO website.

PxStat is the Central Statistics Office’s (CSO) online database of Official Statistics. This database contains current and historical data series compiled from CSO statistical releases and is accessed here . The CSO PxStat Application Programming Interface (API), which is accessed in this package, provides access to PxStat data in JSON-stat format. This dissemination tool allows developers machine to machine access to CSO PxStat data.
