EDITED for Clarification

WordPress.com as well as JetPack provides stats (like no of views, referrer, etc) for various posts and blog as described here :Wordpress Stats

Is there an API so that I can access the stats data and use it as per my needs ?

    I'm not sure if this is asking for a recommendation. To me it sounds more like if the OP wants to know if there is any API that makes any sort of stats available publically. Like XML-RPC but in the reversed order or RSS with more specific infos than just the latest posts/comments, etc. – kaiser Sep 18 '13 at 12:46
  • @brasofilo: I'm not asking for recommendation. I'm asking about sole existence of any API about post statistics as i am unable to find any such. Infact you can assume it as a type of analytics API. Please note, that i'm aware of GA. I want to know if any API can provide post analytic data via XML-RPC or JetPack ? – Vikas Raturi Sep 18 '13 at 14:28

    I misread the context, close vote retracted. Would be nice if you edit the Question to include this clarification and maybe a bit of @kaiser's feedback. – brasofilo Sep 18 '13 at 14:36
  • @VikasRaturi XML-RPC is in long: Xross MarkUp Language - Remote *Publishing* Protocol, so this won't help you. As in my comment above stated, it's about sending data towards WordPress, not retrieving it from there. Maybe you should update your question as Brasofilo mentioned, show us what exactly you're trying to retrieve, etc. – kaiser Sep 18 '13 at 15:04

There is indeed a Stats API that will allow you to access stats from a WordPress.com or a Jetpack site.

You can read more about it here:

Jetpack uses this API to populate the Top Posts widget:
