EconData Demonstration


EconData is a single source of South African macroeconomic data, providing researchers and broader public access to a growing collection of South Africa data sources (currently over 80 000). EconData makes it easy to download and update economic time series and automate workflows that draw on this data. To enable real-time forecast comparisons and model evaluation, the platform provides historical vintages of all curated data. EconData enables users to auto-update their charts and models of South African data, using the EconData R package and open API. The presentation is aimed at encouraging researchers and practitioners from different disciplines to use the platform and contribute data. Please click on the link to download the presentation.
