# statsmodels.datasets.get_data_home¶

statsmodels.datasets.get_data_home(data_home=None)[source]

Return the path of the statsmodels data dir.

By default the data dir is set to a folder named ‘statsmodels_data’ in the user home folder.

Alternatively, it can be set by the ‘STATSMODELS_DATA’ environment variable or programatically by giving an explicit folder path. The ‘~’ symbol is expanded to the user home folder.

If the folder does not already exist, it is automatically created.
