Statistics by Zip Code

I'm doing a project where I require census statistics by Zip Code. I want to look at correlations between several different factors. I have addresses and zip codes.

To pull in data by zip code what would my API call look like.

  1. For all beginning users I have created a post to help explain different portions of an API query, please see the two links I have posted in this comment.

    Please see my post describing an API query at:

    http://apiforum.ideascale.com/a/dtd/API-Query-Dissection/445631-18378

    And refer to documentation explaining valid queries at:

    Okay, but how would this differ now? Is it possible to do anything by zip code?

  3. Perhaps a quick check in the developers area would have revealed this link:

    http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/geo.html

    or this one:

    http://api.census.gov/data/2011/acs5/geo.html

    Both of which include a zip code, and a sample query to show you how the API expects the query.
