Now available: ONS Open API (Beta)
ONS produces a wide variety of different data, made available on our website in various ways. There is undoubtedly so much more that can be done with those data, such as third-party websites combining ONS data with other sources and repackaging for specific audiences, or imaginative data visualisations, and mobile applications.
The ONS Application Programming Interface (API) is the way in which ONS can help those things to happen. Through the provision of the API, it will make it easier for other systems and applications to programmatically use and re-use data directly.
The Beta version of the Open API is available from our API Service pages, which also provides a range of information and tools to help get you started.
