The Central Statistics Office (CSO) StatBank Application Programming Interface (API)
provides access to StatBank data in JSON-stat format. This dissemination tool
allows developers machine to machine access to CSO StatBank data. Details about JSON-stat can
be found at this web address http://json-stat.org/.
The majority of StatBank tables are available in JSON-stat format, on the StatBank
API. StatBank tables with over 150,000 data points are not available in the StatBank
API and a message to this effect is presented when you select the JSON table e.g.
TDM04 is not available. A list of the StatBank tables that are unavailable are presented
If you encounter any difficulties please email
CSO wish you every success using this new data dissemination tool and we welcome
your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
