  • 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

  • SDG4 endpoints not working

  • 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.

  • API Limit calls

    Hello, I am a developer and I can't find a way to get other product than "Starter", the 100 calls/hour seems a bit small, I have registered my application with Unesco and it has been approved, does that mean that I have a bigger limit now? is there any way to increase to 100 calls/hour limit? Thanks Regards Roberto Alvarez

  • unable to generate correct 'long' format from csv

    When using a query builder to generate a url with csv output (selecting series on x axis and lastNObservations =1), the ouput generated is incorrect. Years are listed under the unit of measure and each country is a seperate column (see attached). Ideally the output would conform with tidy data standards (each variable forms a column and each observation a row: http://www.stat.wvu.edu/~jharner/courses/stat623/docs/tidy-dataJSS.pdf ). In addition, when selecting lastNoObservations, it would be highly desirible if no missing observations were returned (since removing missing cases is the objective of quering most recent values). Is there someway for me to specify this structure in the query builder? Thanks Each type of observational unit forms a table
