OECD data for developers
About the API
The OECD has application programming interfaces (APIs) that provide access to datasets in the catalogue of OECD databases. The APIs allow you to query the data in several ways, using parameters to specify your request so that you can create innovative software applications which use OECD datasets.
The APIs are available in JSON and XML formats.
Terms and conditions
You are encouraged to create software applications that use OECD datasets. The use of OECD datasets and the API is governed and limited by specific Terms and Conditions.
