Retrieve data for given units from BDL with specified format.


get_panel_data(unitId, varId, year = NULL, ggplot = FALSE, ...)



A single 12 character NUTS id code or vector of multiple unit id codes. If multiple unit codes are used, some columns are not available. Use search_units or get_units to find unit id code.


A single Id or vector of variable Id's.Use search_variables or get_variables to find variable id code.


A vector of years. If NULL (default) returns data for all available years.


Output in a long format suitable for ggplot2. Allows to plot results directly with ggplot function.


Other arguments passed on to GET. For example a proxy parameters, see details.


A dataset as a tibble.


Data to retrieve from The BDL Web Services can be filtered with arguments. To get JSON data from specified directory with custom filters use get_request directly.

To use a proxy to connect, a use_proxy can be passed to GET. For example get_request(id, filters, config = httr::use_proxy(url, port, username, password)).
