Difference between Data Profile and Summary File API?

What is the difference between the Data Profile data and the Summary file data. It seems very similar, with some overlap, but also slightly different, and I don't understand the relationship between the two. Is the Summary File information used to create the Data Profiles? Are these two totally different surveys with different metrics? It's not clear to me when I should use the Summary File vs Data Profile. I've leaned ...more »

Trouble getting daytime population

Hi everyone, I'm trying to calculate the daytime population at the block level and/or the block group level. It's noted here (https://www.census.gov/hhes/commuting/data/calculations.html) that we can query the API and get the code "B08604 Total Workers for Workplace Geography." However, this code returns the "null" value in various data sets (including ACS 5-year) at the block-group and block level. It seems like ...more »

Merging Table Lookup and Shell Files

In order to get the proper titles for variables/cells in the data I needed to write a program to merge two Excel files. The two files are Sequence_Number_and_Table_Number_Lookup.xls and ACS2012_5-Year_TableShells.xls. The first one contains the sequence and line numbers so that I can get the values from the data-tables. The second one has indents in the cell titles so I know how to combine them to create a proper cell ...more »

List of all Legislature District "names"

I need a list of all the states' legislature's district names. I will use this list as the definitive list of district names that data is mapped to. I tried to use the " Census Name Lookup Tables" found here: https://www.census.gov/geo/maps-data/data/nlt.html but there are many district names that don't map properly to the district names returned by the 2012-5yr-ACS API. So, for example, if I submit the query: http://api.census.gov/data/2012/acs5?get=B19301_001E&for=state+legislative+district+(lower+chamber):*&in=state:50 ...more »

subject matter search

Census has added the very helpful restructured subject matter item lists (eg, http://api.census.gov/data/2000/sf3/variables.html). Thank you. I am seeking an easy way to search for two or more keywords (eg, Age, Hispanic) in a nonphrase structure that will highlight rows/items that meet that condition. ... by searching on the unmodified html. Any thoughts on this? Thank you.

DATE variable in Population Estimates API

Is there any documentation for interpreting the values returned in the DATE variable in the population estimates API?

 

For example, http://api.census.gov/data/2013/pep/natstprc?get=POP,DATE&for=state:25&key=xxxxx returns numerically coded data values (e.g., "1", "6"). I can see by the data that 6 = 2013 but would love to see official documentation somewhere.

 

Thanks!
