Are there plans to write APIs for additional datasets that are currently available? We are looking to harvest PEPAGESEX data annually...thoughts?
I have looked into it, but cannot find the answer.
Does anyone know when the ACS 5-year for 2014 will be released?
My 2012 requests (that previously returned data) now return the error - There was an error while running your query. We've logged the error and we'll correct it ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience. http://api.census.gov/data/2012/acs1?get=NAME,B25091_002E,B25091_003E,B25091_004E,B25091_005E,B25091_006E,B25091_007E,B25091_008E,B25091_009E&for=place:55000&in=state:22&key=API_KEY_HERE 2013 response is fine though, http://api.census.gov/data/2013/acs1?get=NAME,B25091_002E,B25091_003E,B25091_004E,B25091_005E,B25091_006E,B25091_007E,B25091_008E,B25091_009E&for=place:55000&in=state:22&key=API_KEY_HERE... more »
Is there a proven formula to match up slightly different lat/lng values to a street address without submitting both of them to a Geocoding service (since we've already done so and don't want to make a second api call). eg. The following coordinates are for the same street address (55 Church Street zip code 07505), but one set points to the building and the other to the street. lat : 40.9170109 long: -74.1702248 lat:... more »
Census would like to inform everyone through this forum that we have updated the 2012 Economic Census - All Sectors: Economy-Wide Key Statistics (EWKS). It now has more summary levels and OPTAX is required. We recommend you make the necessary modifications in order to continue using this dataset without any problem.
If you have any questions or comment respond to this post or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
http://www.census.gov/easystats/application/ calls the jQuery Templating Plugin from http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.templates/beta1/jquery.tmpl.js., which triggers a mixed content warning (and breaks the application in Chrome 42) when embedding EasyStats in an HTTPS page. The URL should be HTTPS or protocol-relative.

Hi Everyone, First off, I want to congratulate you on putting together such a comprehensive and straightforward set of APIs. This is really excellent work, and it's a great way of making Census Bureau data more accessible. However, in integrating with the Geocoding Services API, I seem to have noticed a bit of an issue: when looking up Geographies, the results are inconsistent. In particular, if I execute an identical... more »
Hi, does anyone know how to use the census.gov's API to find the summary page of the community facts for a location (e.g. Zipcode) available on through this url http://factfinder.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/community_facts.xhtml
I have used Tele-Atlas/TomTom geocoding service which is now been discontinued. I'm trying to find an alternative that would return most or all of the same variables.
1. How do I get access to the API?
2. How is the security? My data is highly sensitive and I have to be 100% there will be no way the data can be viewed or saved.
3. I have to geocoding around 100,000 addresses. Will this be an issue?
I want to retrieve tract level data for all of New York City. I know I can do this using five different calls, one for each of the five counties. I would like to do this with a single call. I have read that the IN clause does not support this (&in=state:36+county:005,061,047,081,085 only returns records for 005). Perhaps this could be done using a place but this is currently not a supported geographic hierarchy.
Hello, I recently obtained and validated my API key. However, when I attempt to enter a test URL in my browser window with my api key I receive a message stating "A valid key must be included with each data API request. You included a key with this request, however, it is not valid. Please check your key and try again."
Newbie question. What I want to do is given an x, y coordinate, I want to pass it to a Census server and have it return data for the block group it intersects. This is an example of what I would like: http://sampleserver1.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Demographics/ESRI_Census_USA/MapServer/1/query?text=&geometry=-95.8239%2C+36.0729&geometryType=esriGeometryPoint&inSR=&spatialRel=esriSpatialRelIntersects&returnCountOnly=false&returnIdsOnly=false&returnGeometry=true&outFields=*&f=pjson... more »
