Open Data Application Programming Interface (API)
STATcube offers the possibility to access data cubes automatically. With the help of an API call, STATcube data can be queried and automatically processed. It is thus possible to obtain data from STATcube with self-created programs, regardless of the selected programming language.
In order to be able to send an automated query to STATcube, an API key is required, which is available to all subscribers.
The technical description of the software manufacturer's Open Data API can be found here:

Please note: In order to get a response from the interface, the base address must be combined with a REST endpoint as specified in the technical description e.g. https://statcubeapi.statistik.at/statistik.at/ext/statcube/rest/v1/table
To help you get started with the automated queries, you can find an add-on package “STATcubeR” for the free software environment for statistical computing R. Online documentation for this package is available as well on GitHub:
Please note: This service is only available to users with a valid subscription contract.
