First Successful Batch-Pull Data Update for IFs Completed

Date: 
2013

The International Futures team finished the first round of data updates to the IFs modeling system using a batch-pull procedure, which was developed largely by Mohammod Irfan and vetted by Pardee Center research assistants. The team first tested the procedure, which allows for partially automated updates to IFs, with the World Bank’s World Development Indicators (WDI) as well as UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) data, and will expand the approach to facilitate updates with UNESCO and International Energy Agency data in the future.
