Access to statistics through API Services

We are making our statistics available through an application programming interface (API). This API is generally available and allows the automatic retrieval of data from DNB Statistics. Read more below about access to the API and the terms of use. 

A portion of the current datasets that can be viewed and downloaded from our website are also available through the API. Datasets that we no longer update are only available on the website.

Over the course of 2024, we will make almost all of our current datasets available through the API in phases. An overview of the datasets that are available can be found in the DNB Statistics API. We will not make some of the current supervisory data on pension funds available in 2024 as we expect to make major changes to the structures of these datasets due to the Future of Pensions Act (Wet Toekomst Pensioenen). If you have any questions about the timing of specific datasets through the API, feel free to contact us at stat-info@dnb.nl.
