Issues with API - NO Date or response.

I'm trying the following call and getting nothing. When I put it into the browser the page just hangs. The response says the server received it and then it stops. I'm calculating the average age of each city in the USA. Here is the request (note I removed my key) http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=[yourkey]&get=PCT0120157,PCT0120158,PCT0120159,PCT0120160,PCT0120161,PCT0120162,PCT0120163,PCT0120164,PCT0120165,PCT0120166,PCT0120167,PCT0120168,PCT0120169,PCT0120170,PCT0120171,PCT0120172,PCT0120173,PCT0120174,PCT0120175,PCT0120176,PCT0120177,PCT0120178,PCT0120179,PCT0120180,PCT0120181,PCT0120182,PCT0120183,PCT0120184,PCT0120185,PCT0120186,PCT0120187,PCT0120188,PCT0120189,PCT0120190,PCT0120191,PCT0120192,PCT0120193,PCT0120194,PCT0120195,PCT0120196,PCT0120197,PCT0120198,PCT0120199,PCT0120200,PCT0120201,PCT0120202,PCT0120203,PCT0120204,PCT0120205,PCT0120206&for=place:36&in=state:99990 ...more »

In 1990 sf1, missing variable Amer Ind/Esk/Aleut Males 12-13 yrs

In the first 1990 census table, there is no variable for Amer Ind/Esk/Aleut Males 12-13 yrs. In the age by race and gender group, the variables skip from P0120131 to P0120133, so presumably P0120132 is the missing age range. Using the variable in the data call results in an unknown variable error.

XML Documentation Mislabel

I just wanted to share a labeling error we have run across in the 2010 SF1 API Variables XML. (http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/variables.xml) Under renter occupied by race/ethnicity for each race/ethnicity (Asian householder as example) the xml:id="H016D0017" and xml:id="H016D0010" are both labeled: label="Renter occupied: !! 7-or-more-person household". When xml:id="H016D0010" is the total and should have a label ...more »

pop-up blocker is hindering access to forum

When I'm on http://www.census.gov/developers/ and try to click the link to visit the developer forum, Chrome sees it as a pop-up and blocks it. If I'm not paying attention, it appears that the url doesn't work.

Missing Variables for 1990 "travel time" sf3

On the 1990 census sf3 variable call, two time frames (20 to 24 and 35 to 39) are missing from "travel time to work". The variable codes increment from P0500001 (TRAVEL TIME[13] Less than 5 minutes) to P0500013 (TRAVEL TIME[13] Worked at home), with P0500005 and P0500008 missing - presumably the missing time frame variables. Using these in the data call results in an 'unknown variable' error. Is this a bug and the data ...more »

API resource not available

I've just started working with the API today. I started by using sample queries such as: http://api.census.gov/data/2012/popproj/pop?get=TOTAL_POP,RACE&SEX=1&YEAR=2012&key= It worked fine earlier today, but now I keep getting the "resource not available" error. EDIT - For clarification, it worked in the AM for a period of about 1 hour. I tried again about 6 hours later, and it didn't work for a period of about 1 hour. ...more »

Missing ZCTA data for arrival time to work?

This used to work for me — currently returns null for all values, but has data for other geographies. Temporary glitch?

Duplicate (and incorrect) "Female 85 years and older" variable

I'm examining a tract in NYC. I found two different codes (P0120026 and P0120049) whose label and concept match exactly: "label": "Female: !! 85 years and over", "concept": "P12. Sex By Age [49]" Furthermore, they return VASTLY different values. See queries below: http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=[key]&get=P0120049,NAME&for=block:*&in=state:36+county:061+tract:004200 http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=[key]&get=P0120026,NAME&for=block:*&in=state:36+county:061+tract:004200 ...more »
