  • differences in total numbers

    Dear UIS team, we use the data presented on your site, “mobility numbers” among the others. We have noticed that the sum of the incoming mobility for each country (directly downloaded) is not (always) equal to that sum when we add up the individual number of the incoming mobility per country for the same country. For example for 2016, we have: Country Total Number (direct) Total Number (sum of all countries) Argentina 75688 73359 Armenia 4483 4188 Aruba 329 295 Could you please let us know how this come? Thanks in advance. (P.S. I sent an email to "uis.datarequest@unesco.org" but it was rejected!)

  • API endpoint not accessible

    When I try to access http(s)://api.uis.unesco.org/, it shows up as "{ "statusCode": 404, "message": "Resource not found" }" in Chrome, IE, and Opera. What's happening?

  • API Query Building Approach

    I need to extract ~50 metrics from the UIS API. As the metrics are all built using slightly different dimensions, the only way I can currently achieve this easily is by making ~50 API requests. Is there something I am missing or is this the only way to query the API? (i.e. Is there a recommended approach for thinking about the query that I need to make?) Best Regards, Josh

  • Import UIS API data in Stata

    Hi, I am trying to load data from the UIS API data in Stata, however I get error messages "authorization required by server". Is there a documentation how to use the API with Stata or any examples? Many thanks, Oliver Fiala

  • Error: The specified CGI application encountered an error and the server terminated the process.

    Dear UIS team, Since yesterday evening, we are experiencing problems with the API. In the following we describe two problem examples. Problem 1 (using the Query Builder in the API portal of the UIS): We try to build the query with Dataflow = Education Students and Teachers v.2; Level of education = Lower secondary education; Sex = Female; Location = Rural. Then, we get the error message “The specified CGI application encountered an error and the server terminated the process.” (See image attached). Problem 2 (connecting directly to the API with our application): When retrieving information a query, we often get the error message “cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10000 milliseconds with 0 bytes received.”

  • New dimensions in EDU_NON_FINANCE

    I udnerstand you will be releasing version 2.0 of the EDU_NON_FINANCE dataset. Is there a way to query without putting a specific version number that just gets the latest? If not, is there a query that lists the version numbers of all datasets?

  • HTTPError

    Hi, I just recently registered for the API, and it has been working, until one point, when I gave an I think simple data request. It gave me the following error message: > HTTPError: 401 Client Error: Unauthorized for url: https://api.uis.unesco.org/sdmx//data/UNESCO,RD,1.0/ALL?format=sdmx-generic-2.1&startPeriod=2007&endPeriod=2016&locale=en&subscription-key=b19e8b601bf44f98a02ea6d6718468c3 Is there anything I am doing wrong in the query? Many thanks!

  • error reading certain urls with r

    I am using the rsdmx package to read url requests into r. However certain urls have recently begun throwing an error. For example passing the following url to rsdmx: https://api.uis.unesco.org/sdmx//data/UNESCO,SDG4,1.0/SCH.................?format=sdmx-compact-2.1&lastNObservations=1&locale=en (key removed) throws: "Error in curlPerform(curl = curl, .opts = opts, .encoding = .encoding) : embedded nul in string: '\037 U+008B>\b'" This same url (along with others) was was working some weeks ago. Other requests can be correctly exucuted by rsdmx though. For example: https://api.uis.unesco.org/sdmx/data/UNESCO,SDG4,1.0/ADMIN.................?format=sdmx-compact-2.1&lastNObservations=1&locale=en I have been in contact with the author of the rsdmx package and he is unsure of the source of the error.
