Not receiving any email in response to api key request

Over the last two days, I submitted a request for an Census API key at

http://www.census.gov/developers/tos/key_request.html

 

The website says to expect an email after a few minutes, but I've never received any email about how to activate an API key. (Yes, I've checked my spam folder.)

Access Micro-data for Blocks

I'm working on a school project with 2010 Census data. Currently, we are getting tract-level data using codes from http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/variables.json to get data. For example, to find the white 65-year old males in a county's tracts, we make the API call: http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=[key]&get=PCT012I068,NAME&for=tract:*&in=state:08+county:059 However, when making the same call at a block ...more »

Error when querying with census tract blocks

Hi, I'm trying to run the following query: http://api.census.gov/data/2010/acs5?key=[key]&get=B00001_001E&for=block:2001&in=state:04+county:015+tract:954900 I get the error message, "There was an error while running your query.

Campaign: Using Data

All Tracts in a MSA

Is it possible to get all tracts within a MSA, as in (an attempt to get all tracts in the DC metro):

 

http://api.census.gov/data/2011/acs5?key=mykey&get=B00001_001E&for=tract:*&in=metropolitan+statistical+area/micropolitan+statistical+area:47900

 

This returns:

"error: unknown/unsupported geography heirarchy"

 

If not this would be useful!
