Remote Data Access

Warning

The access_key keyword argument of DataReader has been deprecated in favor of api_key.

Functions from pandas_datareader.data and pandas_datareader.wb extract data from various Internet sources into a pandas DataFrame. Currently the following sources are supported:

It should be noted, that various sources support different kinds of data, so not all sources implement the same methods and the data elements returned might also differ.

Tiingo

Tiingo is a tracing platform that provides a data api with historical end-of-day prices on equities, mutual funds and ETFs. Free registration is required to get an API key. Free accounts are rate limited and can access a limited number of symbols (500 at the time of writing).

IEX

Warning

Usage of all IEX readers now requires an API key. See below for additional information.

The Investors Exchange (IEX) provides a wide range of data through an API. Historical stock prices are available for up to 15 years. The usage of these readers requires the publishable API key from IEX Cloud Console, which can be stored in the IEX_API_KEY environment variable.

In [1]: import pandas_datareader.data as web

In [2]: from datetime import datetime

In [3]: start = datetime(2016, 9, 1)

In [4]: end = datetime(2018, 9, 1)

In [5]: f = web.DataReader('F', 'iex', start, end)

volume    76424884.00
Name: 2018-08-31, dtype: float64

Note

You must provide an API Key when using IEX. You can do this using os.environ["IEX_API_KEY"] = "pk_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" or by exporting the key before starting the IPython session.

There are additional interfaces to this API that are directly exposed: tops (‘iex-tops’) and last (‘iex-lasts’). A third interface to the deep API is exposed through Deep class or the get_iex_book function.

Alpha Vantage

Alpha Vantage provides realtime equities and forex data. Free registration is required to get an API key.

Historical Time Series Data

Through the Alpha Vantage Time Series endpoints, it is possible to obtain historical equities and currency rate data for individual symbols. For daily, weekly, and monthly frequencies, 20+ years of historical data is available. The past 3-5 days of intraday data is also available.

The following endpoints are available:

  • av-intraday - Intraday Time Series

  • av-daily - Daily Time Series

  • av-daily-adjusted - Daily Time Series (Adjusted)

  • av-weekly - Weekly Time Series

  • av-weekly-adjusted - Weekly Time Series (Adjusted)

  • av-monthly - Monthly Time Series

  • av-monthly-adjusted - Monthly Time Series (Adjusted)

  • av-forex-daily - Daily Time Series

To request the historical exchange rate of physical or digital currencies, use av-forex-daily and format the symbol as “FROM/TO”, for example “USD/JPY”.

The top-level function get_data_alphavantage is also provided. This function will return the TIME_SERIES_DAILY endpoint for the symbol and date range provided.

Quotes

Alpha Vantage Batch Stock Quotes endpoint allows the retrieval of realtime stock quotes for up to 100 symbols at once. These quotes are accessible through the top-level function get_quote_av.

Note

Most quotes are only available during market hours.

Enigma

Access datasets from Enigma, the world’s largest repository of structured public data. Note that the Enigma URL has changed from app.enigma.io as of release 0.6.0, as the old API deprecated.

Datasets are unique identified by the uuid4 at the end of a dataset’s web address. For example, the following code downloads from USDA Food Recalls 1996 Data.

In [1]: import os

In [2]: import pandas_datareader as pdr

In [3]: df = pdr.get_data_enigma('292129b0-1275-44c8-a6a3-2a0881f24fe1', os.getenv('ENIGMA_API_KEY'))

Quandl

Daily financial data (prices of stocks, ETFs etc.) from Quandl. The symbol names consist of two parts: DB name and symbol name. DB names can be all the free ones listed on the Quandl website. Symbol names vary with DB name; for WIKI (US stocks), they are the common ticker symbols, in some other cases (such as FSE) they can be a bit strange. Some sources are also mapped to suitable ISO country codes in the dot suffix style shown above, currently available for BE, CN, DE, FR, IN, JP, NL, PT, UK, US.

As of June 2017, each DB has a different data schema, the coverage in terms of time range is sometimes surprisingly small, and the data quality is not always good.

World Bank

pandas users can easily access thousands of panel data series from the World Bank’s World Development Indicators by using the wb I/O functions.

Indicators

Either from exploring the World Bank site, or using the search function included, every world bank indicator is accessible.

For example, if you wanted to compare the Gross Domestic Products per capita in constant dollars in North America, you would use the search function:

In [1]: from pandas_datareader import wb
In [2]: matches = wb.search('gdp.*capita.*const')

Then you would use the download function to acquire the data from the World Bank’s servers:

In [3]: dat = wb.download(indicator='NY.GDP.PCAP.KD', country=['US', 'CA', 'MX'], start=2005, end=2008)

In [4]: print(dat)
                      NY.GDP.PCAP.KD

              2006  35785.9698172849
              2005  35087.8925933298
Mexico        2008  8113.10219480083
              2007  8119.21298908649
              2006  7961.96818458178
              2005  7666.69796097264
United States 2008  43069.5819857208
              2007  43635.5852068142
              2006   43228.111147107
              2005  42516.3934699993

The resulting dataset is a properly formatted DataFrame with a hierarchical index, so it is easy to apply .groupby transformations to it:

In [6]: dat['NY.GDP.PCAP.KD'].groupby(level=0).mean()
Out[6]:
country
Canada           35765.569188

Finally, we use the statsmodels package to assess the relationship between our two variables using ordinary least squares regression. Unsurprisingly, populations in rich countries tend to use cellphones at a higher rate:

In [17]: import numpy as np
In [18]: import statsmodels.formula.api as smf
In [19]: mod = smf.ols('cellphone ~ np.log(gdp)', dat).fit()
In [20]: print(mod.summary())

Country Codes

The country argument accepts a string or list of mixed two or three character ISO country codes, as well as dynamic World Bank exceptions to the ISO standards.

For a list of the the hard-coded country codes (used solely for error handling logic) see pandas_datareader.wb.country_codes.

Problematic Country Codes & Indicators

Note

The World Bank’s country list and indicators are dynamic. As of 0.15.1, wb.download() is more flexible. To achieve this, the warning and exception logic changed.

The world bank converts some country codes, in their response, which makes error checking by pandas difficult. Retired indicators still persist in the search.

Given the new flexibility of 0.15.1, improved error handling by the user may be necessary for fringe cases.

To help identify issues:

There are at least 4 kinds of country codes:

  1. Standard (2/3 digit ISO) - returns data, will warn and error properly.

  2. Non-standard (WB Exceptions) - returns data, but will falsely warn.

  3. Blank - silently missing from the response.

  4. Bad - causes the entire response from WB to fail, always exception inducing.

There are at least 3 kinds of indicators:

  1. Current - Returns data.

  2. Retired - Appears in search results, yet won’t return data.

  3. Bad - Will not return data.

Use the errors argument to control warnings and exceptions. Setting errors to ignore or warn, won’t stop failed responses. (ie, 100% bad indicators, or a single ‘bad’ (#4 above) country code).

See docstrings for more info.

OECD

OECD Statistics are available via DataReader. You have to specify OECD’s data set code.

To confirm data set code, access to each data -> Export -> SDMX Query. Following example is to download ‘Trade Union Density’ data which set code is ‘TUD’.
