The Dataset

Employment, salary and firm data is from IBGE’s “Cadastro Central de Empresas” (aka CEMPRE). The data is available between 2006 and 2019.

The definition of the Brazilian Legal Amazon at the municipality level is taken from IBGE’s “Mapas Regionais - Amazônia Legal” available here: https://www.ibge.gov.br/geociencias/cartas-e-mapas/mapas-regionais/15819-amazonia-legal.html?=&t=o-que-e.


Using the package is easy enough:


# download raw data from 2006 to 2019
raw_cempre_all <- load_cempre(dataset = "cempre",
                              raw_data = TRUE,
                              geo_level = "municipality",
                              time_period = 2006:2019)
