The function selects the available tables by year or time as a date for a specific country and currency unit in the Eurostat bulk file. Unless you want to work with bulk data files, you should not invoke iotables_download directly, rather via this function, if and when it is necessary.

iotable_year_get(labelled_io_data = NULL, source = "germany_1990",
  geo = "DE", unit = "MIO_EUR", time_unit = "year",
  stk_flow = "TOTAL", data_directory = NULL, force_download = TRUE)

Arguments

labelled_io_data

If you have downloaded a bulk data file with iotables_download, it is faster to work with the data in the memory. Defaults to NULL when the data will be retrieved from the hard disk or from the Eurostat website invoking the same function.

source

A data source, for example naio_10_cp1700. Symmetric input-output table at basic prices (product by product) (naio_10_cp1700) Symmetric input-output table at basic prices (industry by industry) (naio_10_cp1750) Symmetric input-output table at basic prices (product by product) (previous years prices) (naio_10_pyp1700) Symmetric input-output table at basic prices (industry by industry) (previous years prices) (naio_10_pyp1750) Table of trade and transport margins at basic prices (naio_10_cp1620) and at previous' years prices (naio_10_pyp1620) Table of taxes less subsidies on products at basic prices (naio_10_cp1630) and at previous' years prices (naio_10_pyp1630) For further information consult the Eurostat Symmetric Input-Output Tables page.

geo

A country code or a country name. For example, SK or as Slovakia.

unit

A character string containing the currency unit, defaults to MIO_NAC (million national currency unit). The alternative is MIO_EUR.

time_unit

Defaults to 'year' and years are returned as numbers. Alternative is to return 'time' as vector of dates.

stk_flow

Defaults to DOM as domestic output, alternative IMP for imports and TOTAL for total output. For source = 'naio_10_cp1620' and trade and transport margins and source = 'naio_10_cp1630' taxes less subsidies only TOTAL is not used.

data_directory

Defaults to NULL. Use if it you used a data_directory parameter with iotable_get or iotables_download.

force_download

Defaults to TRUE. If FALSE it will use the existing downloaded file in the data_directory or the temporary directory, if it exists. Will force download only in a new session.

Examples

germany_years <- iotable_year_get ( source = "germany_1990", geo = 'DE', unit = "MIO_EUR" )
#> The following years are available for DE in MIO_EUR currency units: #> 1990-01-01.
