New Android App Census US

Hello, Just wanted to let you know that I've just published an android tablet app to the Google Play Store: CensusUS at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.clcassidy.censusus.

Poverty map by age and sex

http://pad.human.cornell.edu/Unlisted/uncertaintymap_fullinfo_api_B17001.cfm

 

I had already created a thematic map application that gave information about the uncertainty surrounding ACS estimates (move your mouse over the counties). This website generates the map using API data requests. A future expansion will include parsing the variables XML file.

Census API + FEC campaign contribution data

This is just something I wanted to be able to visualize for my own entertainment/enlightenment... but I think it turned out pretty well. Still working on showing the time series of contributions in a given ZIP.

JQPlot and JQuery JSON chart sample (simple)

http://desertbiz.biz/censussample.html

 

Uses JQPlot plugins. The hardest part was translating array elements. Wish list: remove the word "county" from the table cells...

 

By the way, I am still serious about applying for the telecommute job for the Census Bureau. When will the hiring manager be able to sift through the applications? : )

ACS Choropleth Maps

http://acsmapper.appspot.com/D3 Given the dearth of other live examples, I felt like I should post something, though I haven't been able to do a lot of necessary cleanup and polish. It was nice to be able to pull something like this together with just a few hours of work via the Census API, though. For a given ACS sub-table (anything with an _002E or higher suffix), I'm calling the data for all US counties and dividing ...more »

Filling DOM elements with Javascript based on custom tags

http://pad.human.cornell.edu/Unlisted/api_json.html Please take a look at the source. What I tried to do is creating a web page using empty DOM elements and fill them later with Javascript and API calls. The Javascript loops through all elements with class='acs5' and I use the HTML5 data-* custom tags to define what value I would like to see in that element. The browser might throw a warning because I violate same-origin ...more »
