2005-2009 ACS Data

Is there any chance thay data from the 2005-2009 ACS might be included via the API anytime soon? (Or, barring that, is there some sort of anticipated timeline moving forward?)

 

Thanks!

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 »

Add Nation, Region and Division to Decennial Census API

The ACS API includes geographic summary levels above the state level, the SF1 and SF3 API do not. I would like to see those levels added.

Remove the API Key Requirement

API keys are a barrier to entry, and are somewhat pointless for web apps where anyone can view source and grab a key

Lotus Notes Calendar needs to integrate with SharePoint.

SharePoint is gainig ground as the primary collaborative platform in the Bureau. For any collaborative team (Teamsites in SharePoint) a SharePoint Calendar is available but either not used or out of sync, or manually replicated with Notes Calendar. Can we live without a real integration to Notes Calendar for long?

School Districts

Appears Census 2010 school districts not among data enhancements. Can these data be made accessible? Thank you.

School District Type

This is a request to simplify the school district API call structures to have only one replacing the three separate calls for unified, secondary and elementary. The school district codes are unique within state irrespective of the type (U, S, E). Most users are interested in a few districts by name/id, all districts in a state/region or all districts in the U.S. Also, just having the state+district code provides ...more »

Metros & ACS 2010/2011 1 Year Data

This adds to my note re the need for 113th Congressional District data (minimally from ACS 2011 1 year data corresponding to easystats). Since all but 2 MSAs are included in the ACS 1 year estimates, most users would benefit from having most recent (ACS 2011 1 year) data for MSAs, unless comparing the MSA with subMSA geography. This is a request to add MSA ACS 2011 1 year (also ACS 2010 and Census 2010 even better) ...more »

113th Congressional District Data

The App Gallery shows Easystats using the API operations. Easystats is presently the only source of ACS 2011 1 year data for 113th Congressional Districts. Can those same data be available to us via API calls? 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 »

School District Data

Have reviewed access to the ACS 2011 data by school district. Looks good. Very much need the same for ACS 2010 and Census 2010 SF1 (particularly the single year of age by gender tables iterated by race/origin, but pretty much all of it).

 

Thanks to all of you who have been working to make the API resources available.
