Numbeo API

API access to data from (in third party application)

The current documentation is available here. Although content at website is provided for free to use under our Terms of use, for companies who wants to access our data from their applications, we do provide an API to get the data in a machine friendly format.

API access is available for a fee using a yearly subscription model.

Why do we charge access to our API? These are some reasons:

Numbeo API currently uses JSON interchangable data output, so it can be used in various platforms or systems. We help each particular client with getting the data they need from our database. Numbeo updates the API and the documentation with new features to accommodate client requests. Querying for cities is available by using its name (Numbeo use geo-normative service from third parties) or by latitude/longitude.

For academic purposes (i.e. university research), we might grant free API licence as determined at our discretion. Please look at the application for free academic licence. We are sorry, but at this moment, we do not grant free API licences to companies and individuals.

Before you do an order, please read our Terms of Use document to see acceptable uses.
