Python version of the R arcos package

Project description


Build Status

Welcome to arcospy, the unofficial python version of the R arcos package maintained by the Washington Post. arcospy is the result of a class project carried out at the University of Maryland in the Fall of 2019. The project was motivated by the Washington Post’s data-driven story on a large pain pill database recently made publicly available.

The arcospy module was built to offer the exact same functionality as arcos, with the only difference being the ability to run the API calls in python! All of the commands in arcospy inherit the names from the original commands in arcos. Both arcos and arcospy act as wrappers for the DEA ARCOS dataset.

Disclaimer: please note that the author of this package, Jeff Sauer, is not affiliated with the Washington Post in any official capacity.
