The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) works to make markets for financial products and services work for Americans through education, enforcement, and study. The CFPBâ€™s Consumer Complaint Database catalogues the complaints received about financial products and services. The database consists of a single dataset, while providing multiple views through which to analyze the dataset.
The Consumer Complaint Database is exposed through a RESTful API built on the Socrata Open Data API. The API allows applications to retrieve metadata about the dataset and views, query for views matching specified search criteria, or retrieve specific rows of data from the dataset and views.
