The AMECO package

This R package can be used to retrieve data from the European Commission's AMECO database.

To cite the AMECO package in publications, use:

Graeme Walsh (2017). AMECO R package version 0.1.0.

Please note that there exists a package called ameco (lower case letters). My package is separate from that one. Compared to that package, my package downloads the data from the website and the code is written to always retrieve the latest version of the database. I will add a feature to retrieve vintages in a future version (in the coming days).
