ukds: Reproducible Data Retrieval from the UK Data Service

Reproducible, programmatic retrieval of datasets from the UK Data Service <>. The UKDS is "the UK's largest collection of social, economic and population data resources," but researchers taking advantage of these datasets are caught in a bind. The UKDS terms and conditions sharply limit redistribution of downloaded datasets, but to ensure that one's work can be reproduced, assessed, and built upon by others, one must provide access to the raw data one employed. The ukds package cuts this knot by providing programmatic, reproducible access to the UKDS datasets from within R.
