I'm trying to download a csv dataset directly into RStudio from the web. The following code is an example I found online and I can confirm that it runs perfectly and automatically generates a dataframe.
Now the dataset(s) I'm interested in are the officially published Austrian Covid-19 data and I must admit the problem I seem to be having could be determining/identifying the right url. For example I want the dataset CovidFaelle_Altersgruppe.csv.
This can be directly downloaded from h-t-tps://covid19-dashboard.ages.at/data/CovidFaelle_Altersgruppe.csv (when I enter that into my browser, a download window automatically pops up), however
read.csv("https://covid19-dashboard.ages.at/data/CovidFaelle_Altersgruppe.csv") doesn't work.
A download link to the data and therewith associated metadata can be found both on
which are for some reason circularly linked to each other.
Also using these urls and manually extending them to include /CovidFaelle_Altersgruppe.csv doesn't work for me though. Also tried right clicking on the download link and copying the link location/saving the link itself, I just can't seem to find the right one.
I'm aware that there might be indirect versions (first downloading the data then loading it from the computer), but I'm eager to understand why this specific one fails me. I apologise for distorting the https using dashes, but new users are apparently only allowed two links per post, however my main issues lies within finding the correct url, so I needed to do that. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
