  1. Lisa,

    I applaud the immediate release of this data and am happy to see opening up the Data Profiles in the API, but wonder what the future plans are. Is the Census Bureau stepping away from API access to the detailed tables? Will data profiles from previous releases be made available through the API? Is there a vision what data will be available through the API in the shorter and longer term? Are there any enhancements we can look forward to in the near future?

      We will have the 5 year summary files available with the demographic profiles when that set is available and will have the 1 and 3 year summary files available later this winter. As for other enhancements, we're going to roll out a discovery service to help explore the data sets.
