Add GET parameter for tables

There is a limit of 50 variables in a GET. So, I can understand, sort of, the need to limit, but many of your tables have more than 50 cells. For example: [ACSSF, B04001, 0006, , 7, 109 CELLS, , FIRST ANCESTRY REPORTED, Ancestry], has 109 cells, and if I want to get Estimates plus Margin of Errors I need to get 218 variables. So, why not accept a table number parameter instead? It would make the calls much easier and ...more »

2000 County Subdivision SF1 and SF3

We are looking to pull county subdivision data for 2008-12, 2010 and 2000. Unfortunately, unlike the other two, 2000 county subdivision geography is not available for SF1 or SF3.

idiosyncratic geographies

My specific request would be for api access to the statewide non-metropolitan geographic level (need the medians so I can't back into a value). However, I realize this has to be a pretty low priority for most api users. Do the developers have a goal of adding more of these types of geos or should I expect that I'll be going to factfinder for this type of request for years to come? (Extremely happy with the current ...more »

Access Specific Population Data

I would like to access specific population data for Black African America population data by state, county and city. Is this possible today? If so how do I access the data to use for an App? If not, can this feature be created?

City value from coordinates

IS there any webservice or feature which will give me the city value for the passed coordinates. Currently, the FCC API returns FIPS Code for the coordinates, is there a way to send this FIPS code and get the city value back, any ideas, thoughts will be highly appreciated.

Suggested Datasets

Perhaps its obvious, but not taking chances ... this is a request to have ACS 2012 1 year and ACS 2012 5 year datasets available when released or soon thereafter. The ACS 2011 scope of geography would be great. 113th congressional districts should be available with the 1 year estimates. It is requested that ACS 2012 (and 2011) 1 year and 5 year subject matter be extended by adding the demographic profiles (dp2 ... ...more »

More consistency between the Decennial API's

I am working on a page drawing data from the 1990, 2000 and 2010 SF1 and noticed a lot of differences between them. Most importantly for me: - the variables that can be drawn from the Geographic header varies a lot, in 2010 only the Name, in 1990 and 2000 a whole slew of variables, including a very useful AREALAND, but NAME for one is missing in 1990 - in 2010 the list of available geographies is a lot longer than in ...more »
