    Getting a different error when running:

    http://api.census.gov/data/2010/acs5?key=[replace_with_your_key]&get=B17001_004E&for=american+indian+area/alaska+native+area/hawaiian+home+land:2430

    Returns:

    error: ambiguous geography "american indian area/alaska native area/hawaiian home land:2430". You must either specify a wildcard or full qualify it with state

    I can get to this geography and table without any problems in the fact finder:

    http://factfinder2.census.gov/bkmk/table/1.0/en/ACS/10_AIAN/B17001/2500000US2430

    Are my parameters ok?

  3. I am just getting started.

    What's the difference between http://api.census.gov and http://thedataweb.rm.census.gov ?

    I can't usually get api.census.gov to work...

  4. Api.census.gov is the entry point for the dataweb API.

    TheDataWeb.rm.census.gov redirects to the Data Ferrett another product made by the same people who currently maintain the api.
