arguments passed to read_cashrate()

Details

Note that in the very early 1990s, the cash rate target was expressed as a range (eg. "17% to 17.5%"). Where this is the case, the value returned here (and in read_rba()) is the mid-point of this range.

If type = 'both', note that the returned tbl is tidy/long.

rba_cashrate() is a wrapper around read_cashrate().

Value

A tbl_df with two columns: date and cash_rate.
