About Data Commons

Data Commons is an Open Knowledge Graph that provides a unified view across multiple public data sets and statistics. You can view what datasets are currently ingested and browse the graph using our browser.


Apache 2.0


The Python Client API currently supports python>=3.6. We use bazel as our build system. To test, first install bazel then run the following:

$ bazel build //...
$ bazel test //...


For general questions or issues about the API, please open an issue on our issues page. For all other questions, please send an email to
