Variable Description APIs would be useful

As a developer, I think an API to describe and search for SF1 variables will be very useful.

 

Sample API:

http://thedataweb.rm.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/desc/(parameters)

 

Usages:

1. http://thedataweb.rm.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/desc/all

returns a JSON array of all SF1 variables and their descriptions.

 

2. http://thedataweb.rm.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/desc/P0010001

returns information about P0010001 (its name, concept, etc)

 

3. http://thedataweb.rm.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/desc/Asian

returns a list of variables related to Asian.
