#BISdata

Functions for downloading data from the Bank for International Settlements (BIS; (https://www.bis.org/)[https://www.bis.org/]) in Basel. Supported are only full datasets in (typically) CSV format. The package is lightweight and without dependencies; suggested packages are used only if data is to be transformed into particular data structures, for instance into 'zoo' objects. Downloaded data can optionally be cached, to avoid repeated downloads of the same files.

#Installation

To install the package from a running R session, type:

install.packages('BISdata',
                 repos = c('https://enricoschumann.net/R',
                           getOption('repos')))

or clone/build the repository's latest version.
