iotables 0.1.3 Unreleased

  • Added a NEWS.md file to track changes to the package.
  • Added Contributor Code of Conduct in CONDUCT.md
  • Some functions have paralel versions, and will be brought to rOpenSci naming conventions (object_verb())
  • Asked to join rOpenGov - excited but inexperienced in this!

iotables 0.1.4 Unreleased

New functions are added which enable a very simple IO analysis. As an important milestone, an analytical solution comparable to the Eurostat manual, the German employment indicators are correctly calculated (see README)

  • The input_indicator_create() creates the indicators.
  • The equation_solve() solves the basic input-output equations on real-life data, i.e. correctly prepared the two sides of the equation product- or industrywise.
  • The multiplier_create() is a wrapper around the more general equation_solve()
  • The README contains examples to use this new functions.
  • Some new tests are added to the testthat functions.
  • Further example data is added from Croatia, together with the employment_aggregate() helper function to match SIOT data with non-conforming employment statistics.
  • There is a vignette called Working with Croatian Symmetric Input-Output Tables that shows some real-life uses.
  • Testing on Travis (ubuntu and OSX tests.)

iotables 0.2 Unreleased

The forthcoming update will rewrite and generalize some of the earlier functions. In particular, the following features will be available:

  • Handling 7 types of Eurostat tables, not only the current price table.
  • Closing off households, i.e. including endogenous demand for induced effects.
  • Guidelines to work with OECD mass downloader.
  • Some earlier functions are phased out, because they are successfully generalized.
  • The standard system.rda contains the metadata necessary to re-order the bulk files. This will require a lot of patient testing, and it can be always updated with new data sources.

At this point I will go with preparing a release the table on CRAN. The current version builds without warnings or notes on Windows and Linux.

iotables 0.2 is moved to rOpenGov.

iotables 0.2.1 Unreleased

  • Correctly handles the total Eurostat national accounts vocabulary, and adds all Croatian (not fully conforming) tables to the package.

iotables 0.2.2 Unreleased

  • Updated README file and new Croatia vignette.

iotables 0.2.3 Unreleased

  • Eurostat withdrew naio_cp17_r2, and there is a temporary fix to work with archived versions. Some metadata errors and documentation errors were corrected.

iotables 0.2.4 2018-01-30

  • Some documentation improvements. This version was submitted for CRAN for release.

iotables 0.2.5 Unreleased

  • Some documentation improvements.

iotables 0.2.6 Unreleased

  • Download naio_10_cp1620 (trade and transport margins) or naio_10_cp1630 (net taxes) with the parameter stk_flow="TOTAL". Correctly builds on Windows and Mac OS (old and release version) but problem with the dependency eurostat in Linux on Travis.

iotables 0.2.7 Unreleased

Default data directory for faster programmatic use and phasing out discountinued Eurostat statistics. A bit improved messages and documentation.

iotables 0.2.8 Unreleased

Handles tables with purchasers’ prices. Imports Eurostat employment data.

iotables 0.2.9 2018-08-05

Error corrected concerning creation of temporary files on non-Windows environments. No uses file.path() to create platform-independent files. Released on CRAN.

iotables 0.3.0 Unreleased

  • Correctly handles some countries that differ from the standard SIOT structure. The Czech Republic does not include G47 and I68 imputed rents in the table, which caused problems with the ordering of the table and the creation of coefficients.
  • Uses tidyr::nested() data structures which are far easier handled in highly structured data sets.

iotables 0.3.1 2018-08-24

  • Correcting a bug that did not always remove the right columns from use_table_get(). Released on CRAN.

iotables 0.3.2 2018-09-01

  • Better exception handling in equation_solve(). Removes trivial erroneous, all-zero columns. Efficiency gains in indicator and multiplier creation. New function to create backward linkages. Released on CRAN.

iotables 0.3.3 2018-09-10

iotables 0.3.4 2018-09-14

iotables 0.3.5 2018-11-29

  • New function iotable_year_get() which returns the available tables by year or time from the bulk database for a given country and currency unit.
  • Package now handles Use table at basic prices (naio_10_cp1610 and naio_10_pyp1610), Supply table at basic prices incl. transformation into purchasers' prices (naio_10_cp15), Use table at purchasers' prices (naio_10_cp16) after correcting a vocabulary error.
  • This version is a release candidate for CRAN.

iotables 0.3.6 Unreleased

iotables 0.3.7 Unreleased

  • New example data(netherlands_2006), terminology and analytical improvements following Input-Output Multipliers Specification Sheet and Supporting Material, Spicosa Project Report. Results are checked against the publication.
  • For terminological clarity, earlier direct_supply_effects_create() function is renamed direct_supply_effects_create().
  • The function effects_create() currently refers to the function returning direct effects of a change in demand.
  • The function multipliers_create() refers to the function returning direct and indirect effects of a change in demand.
  • The Germany 1990 vignette needs to be reviewed. Currently it may not be consistent with effects and multipliers, it will be included in the next development version.

iotables 0.3.8 Unreleased

  • Function input_indicator_create() has a new, optional parameter for naming the new indicators in the key column.
  • New convenience function for nicer printing of structured SIOT tables and related matrix results. Not yet exported, first will be used on vignettes only.

iotables 0.3.9 Unreleased

This is a much improved, simplified pre-release version, with highly improved performance, more consistent function interface and far more readable code. The last CRAN release is stable, the following version will be a stable, better release candidate.

  • The Germany example is converted to the ESA2010 vocabulary.
  • The output_get() is now a wrapper around primary_input_get() and gva_get() is completely deprecated.
  • The input_coefficient_matrix_create() is now a wrapper around the more general coefficient_matrix_create().
  • The use_table_get() function is now named input_flow_get() but it is seldom used, as the analytical function will call it as needed.
  • A completely dataset, metadata and vignette was added to test the functions on the United Kingdom Input-Output Analytical Tables, 2010. article and dataset.
  • The new function supplementary_add() can add a supplementary account or row to the table, useful to add employment data, for example.
  • The new function total_tax_add() adds a summary of product and production taxes among the primary inputs.
  • Clearly divided analytical functions, direct_effects_create() , indirect_effects_create(), input_multiplier_create() create the direct, indirect and total effects matrix.

iotables 0.4 Unreleased

New vignette United Kingdom Input-Output Analyitcal Tables to compare analytical function results with published results from the UK National Office for Statistics.

This is a CRAN Release candidate, but due to the CRAN team vacation and maintenance work it will be submitted only on Jan 2nd 2019. The development version builds (to my knowledge) without errors, warnings and notes.
