Get the FRED tags for a category. Optionally, filter results by tag name, tag group, or search. Series are assigned tags and categories. Alternatively, it is possible to get the tags for a category through a call to a function in the fredr/series endpoint. See fredr_series. No tags exist for a category that does not have series.

category_id

An integer ID for the category.

...

These dots only exist for future extensions and should be empty.

tag_names

A string indicating which series tags to match. Multiple tags can be delimited by a semicolon in a single string (e.g. "usa;gnp").

tag_group_id

A string representing the tag group id to filter tags by type. No filtering by default. Possible values include:

  • "geo" - Geography

  • "geot" - Geography Type

  • "rls" - Release

  • "seas" - Seasonal Adjustment

limit

An positive integer indicating maximum number of results to return. Possible values are any integer between 1 and 1000 (default), inclusive.

offset

An non-negative integer used in conjunction with limit for long series. This mimics the idea of pagination to retrieve large amounts of data over multiple calls. Defaults to 0.

order_by

Order results by values of the specified attribute. Possible values include: "series_count" (default), "popularity"``, "created", "name", "group_id"`.

sort_order

A string representing the order of the resulting series. Possible values are: "asc" (default), and "desc".

realtime_start

A Date indicating the start of the real-time period. Defaults to today's date. For more information, see Real-Time Periods.

realtime_end

A Date indicating the end of the real-time period. Defaults to today's date. For more information, see Real-Time Periods.
