Improving Brazilian database


#1

Dear DB.nomics Team,

I would like to help DB.nomics. I think I could help you improving Brazilian database (BCB and IBGE, the largest providers of public economic time series here in Brazil).

I already have some R code (written by me and a friend) to download a huge amount of data from BCB and IBGE.

Hello @henrique,

Thanks for your interest in DBnomics, and for proposing your help!

Is your R code published somewhere?

We already wrote a fetcher to download data from BCB: https://next.nomics.world/BCB (source code: https://git.nomics.world/dbnomics-fetchers/bcb-fetcher). We do not plan writing a fetcher for IBGE (you can see our milestones).

What would you like to do to help? Did you find any problems that we could fix, or would you like to write a new fetcher?

Best Regards

Christophe
