CFPB trend data downloader

This is a tool for downloading complaint trend data from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The site requests data using the CFPB's API, and then makes that data available as a table and CSV for download.

View and download individual complaints, and use the CFPB's own trends tool (which does not provide a way to downloaded aggregated trend data), on the Consumer Complaint Database homepage.

The code for this page is on Github.
