dot-IDvars: Global Identifier Macros

Description Usage See Also Examples

Description

The macro .IDvars contains the string c("DSID", "Series") denoting variables that uniquely identify series in the database. Note that the series code contained in "Series" alone is not sufficient to uniquely identify a series as some series are recorded with the same code in multiple datasets (mostly either the same data aggregated at a different frequency, or a different collection of indicators). For example goods exports with the series code "EX_G" are recorded in the datasets "BOU_MMI", "BOU_MMI_A" (annual data), and "BOU_MMI_FY" (fiscal year data).

The macro .Tvars contains the string c("Date", "Year", "Quarter", "FY", "QFY", "Month", "Day") denoting temporal identifiers generated by expand_date. The "Date" variable is sufficient to uniquely identify a point in time in the database.
