Scope of geocodes

The acs5 at state level uses a gnis coding in query. maybe others do also. It is suggested that only FIPS codes, census codes (places, tracts etc), and OMB codes (cbsa etc) be used. folks are far more familiar with FIPS codes and it willl reduce a) confusion and b) Census resources to maintain a additional layer of geocodes. it might be that gnis is going to be a national standard, maybe, but we are not there now.

113th Congressional District Data

If so, 1) the same scope of ACS 2011 1 year items should be available minimally for the US 010 & states 040 (not supported by easystats) and 2) there needs to be a minimal expansion of another 50-60 subject ...more »

HTTP Get returning all null values

Hi,

I am doing a http get http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=user key&get=P0010001,NAME&for=state:* and this succeeds with response of 200, but the JSON elements are null. This same call used to work a few days back, now I get the following: ["P0010001","NAME","state"],["null","null","null"],["null","null","null"],...

Please help.

Thank You.

ACS 2012 PUMS Data

for Census team -

are the summary level 795, Public Use Microdata Area available in the recently posted ACS 2012 1 year data?

 

The geography type "public+use+microdata+area" does not seem to work.

 

Are Component Level data available? e.g. US: Urban?

A statistical test is not appropriate. An '-' entry in the estimate column indicates that either ...more »
