Statistics Sweden’s statistics are available for new services


Now companies and private individuals have access to Statistics Sweden’s statistics, which can be used for new products and services. This involves data from the Statistical Database that can be digitally transferred via a programming interface called an API.

APIs (Application Programming Interface) can be processed and used, for example, to build apps for smartphones or new web services. You can use tables or parts of tables from the Statistical Database at Statistics Sweden free of charge.

The ambition of the Swedish Government's digital agenda is to improve conditions for the reuse of public information from government agencies for both commercial and non-profit purposes. This is also regulated in the PSI Directive and the INSPIRE directive from the EU.
