Trouble getting daytime population

Hi everyone,

 

I'm trying to calculate the daytime population at the block level and/or the block group level.

 

It's noted here (https://www.census.gov/hhes/commuting/data/calculations.html) that we can query the API and get the code "B08604 Total Workers for Workplace Geography."

 

However, this code returns the "null" value in various data sets (including ACS 5-year) at the block-group and block level.

 

It seems like there are many companies out there that already seem to have daytime population, and I'm wondering if you guys could help point me in the right direction in somehow deriving the daytime population.

 

Thank you very much!
