Socrata was acquired by Tyler Technologies in 2018 and is now the Data and Insights division of Tyler. The platform is still powered by the same software formerly known as Socrata but you will see references to Data & Insights going forward.

The $offset Parameter

The $offset parameter is most often used in conjunction with $limit to page through a dataset. The $offset is the number of records into a dataset that you want to start, indexed at 0. For example, to retrieve the “4th page” of records (records 151 - 200) where you are using $limit to page 50 records at a time, you’d ask for an $offset of 150:$limit=50&$offset=150
