Fxrates is a command to import historical U.S. exchange rate data from the Federal Reserve and to calculate the daily change of the exchange rates. Because many cross-country datasets use different spellings and conventions for country names, we also introduce a second command, countrynames, to convert country names to a common naming standard.
Keywords: Stata, fxrates, countrynames, exchange rates, country names, standardization, data management, historical data
