Learn about the alternative source of Penn World table data

We showed how to download the pwt7.0 dataset in a comma-delimited format earlier from the following link. Some scholars have put together an R package pwt, which contains six different earlier versions of Penn World Table data (pwt5.6, 6.1, 6.2, 7.0, and 7.1). So an easy way to access the pwt 7.0 dataset is to install the pwt package, upload the package in R, and then directly read the pwt7.0 dataset. The R code below shows how to upload the package and then read pwt7.0 in R.
