africamonitor: Africa Macroeconomic Monitor Database API

An R API providing access to a relational database with macroeconomic data for Africa. The database contains >700 macroeconomic time series from mostly international sources, grouped into 50 macroeconomic and development-related topics. Series are carefully selected on the basis of data coverage for Africa, frequency, and relevance to the macro-development context. The project is part of the 'Kiel Institute Africa Initiative' <https://www.ifw-kiel.de/institute/initiatives/kielinstituteafricainitiative/>, which, amongst other things, aims to develop a parsimonious database with highly relevant indicators to monitor macroeconomic developments in Africa, accessible through a fast API and a web-based platform at <https://africamonitor.ifw-kiel.de/>. The database is maintained at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy <https://www.ifw-kiel.de/>.
