Get overview list for all Statistics Canada data tables (deprecated)

Description

This method is deprecated, please use 'list_cansim_cubes' instead. Generates an overview table containing metadata of available Statistics Canada data tables. A new and updated table will be generated if this table does not already exist in cached form or if the force refresh option is selected (set to FALSE by default). This can take some time as this process involves scraping through hundreds of Statistics Canada web pages to gather the required metadata. If option cansim.cache_path is set it will look for and store the overview table in that directory.

Usage

list_cansim_tables(refresh = FALSE)

Arguments

refresh

Default is FALSE, and will regenerate the table if set to TRUE

Value

A tibble with available Statistics Canada data tables, listing title, Statistics Canada data table catalogue number, deprecated CANSIM table number, description, and geography
