FREDUSE: Stata module to Import FRED (Federal Reserve Economic Database) data
AbstractThe FRED repository at http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/ contains over 3,000 U.S. economic time series. Each time series is stored in a separate file that also contains a string-date variable and header with information about the series. freduse imports a list of series into a single Stata dataset. This routine will be documented in an upcoming issue of the Stata Journal.
