year

pool

local

Details

Locally cached data is used in case of connection problems, of if local = TRUE. For memory space reasons local data is only available for WHO high-income countries, and only for the latest year.

The results of get_who_mr are memoised for options("heemod.memotime") (default: 1 hour) to increase resampling performance.
