ECB SDW and Eurostat Add-in

Postby jfgeli » Wed Feb 24, 2016 8:52 am

Hi there,
Maybe this is not the correct place where to post this but...I was wondering if you could include an Add-in to download series from ECB´s SDW and Eurostat. Currently, using Quandl one can have access to most series of ECB´s SDW and some of EuroStat. Alternative, we can use the FRED Add-in, but we also would be missing many things from SDW and Eurostat. On top of that, the Quandl plugin does not allow to download too many series per day (less than 100 I guess). Having access to ECBs and EuroStat would speed up the access substantially and allow people to download all those series currently not accesible in Quandl or FRED.
I am sure there is a lot of appetite for such a plug-in but I am not sure if there is a way of collecting votes or likes for a such a request.
Cheers,
Fede

Actually, and add-in to (programatically) retrieve IMF and OECD data would also be highly appreciated.

I support this! It can be done if Eviews would support importing data directly using API in Jason-Stat format. There are now plenty of organisations offering data freely using APIs, see e.g.,
- National Institute for Statistics of Italy<http://apistat.istat.it/?q=help>,
- Statistics Norway<http://data.ssb.no/api/?lang=en>,
- UK’s Office for National Statisticshttps://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/ap ... rvice/home,
- Statistics Sweden<http://www.scb.se/en_/About-us/Open-data-API/API-for-the-Statistical-Database-/>,
- Statistics Denmark<http://www.dst.dk/da/Statistik/statistikbanken/api.aspx>,
- Statistics Greenland<http://bank.stat.gl/pxweb/en/Greenland/>,
- Statistics Finland<http://pxnet2.stat.fi/PXWeb/pxweb/en/StatFin/>,
- Instituto Galego de Estatística<http://www.ige.eu/web/mostrar_paxina.jsp?paxina=004015&idioma=gl>,
- Central Statistics Office of Ireland<http://www.cso.ie/webserviceclient/>,
- United Nations Economic Commission for Europe<http://w3.unece.org/PXWeb/en>,
