When you want to download large dataset, some series are missing without any warning message.
How to reproduce this bug:
- Follow this link (This is the bilateral trade for several countries): http://widukind-api.cepremap.org/api/v1/sdmx/IMF/data/DOT/6.112+156+158+111+132+136+134+193+273+172+228+186+144+196+122+542.A.txg-fob-usd.112+156+158+111+132+136+134+193+273+172+228+186+144+196+122+542
- Search for “273” ( Ctrl +F
- If you look closely you’ll see that country
273(Mexico) is never shown as “reference area”, which mean that we don’t have exports from Mexico. (searching for
REF-AREA="273"gives no result)
- If you remove 1 country from the request (for example
542for Korea) you get the following link: http://widukind-api.cepremap.org/api/v1/sdmx/IMF/data/DOT/6.112+156+158+111+132+136+134+193+273+172+228+186+144+196+122.A.txg-fob-usd.112+156+158+111+132+136+134+193+273+172+228+186+144+196+122
- Now, searching for
REF-AREA="273"gives you 4 returns (but we should have 14 results as there are 15 countries)
Haven’t tried this in JSON, maybe only a SDMX bug.
