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 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.

Language Speaker Search

Since United States is a diversity country. People speak different languages over here. Different language represent different culture, and different market. We need language speaker map.

Search for disability

I'm working on a project that would be greatly enhanced by offering the ability to query the database for the number of disabled individuals in a given area.

 

This data can be found by clicking through the census site, so I wonder why it's not available via the API?

 

I wish I didn't have to tell users they needed to do their own clicking on this, I'd much rather grab that data for them automatically.

API SUMLEV 101 place query capability

It would be nice if the API query could capability include SUMLEV 101 place fields. The Census SF1 documentation does include place fields for SUMLEV 101, but I assume the API only has a subset of 101 implemented.

These 2 API queries do NOT work.

 

get=P0010001,NAME&for=place:*&in=state:06+county:91

 

get=P0010001,NAME&for=place:*&in=state:06+county:91+tract:010000

Having used these APIs for a while, I find them very useful and working well. Thank you. Among needed additions/extensions are these items ... APIs structured somewhat like these to access the underlying data as used in the new Census "Americas Economy" app is very much needed ... with as much geographic drill-down as feasible. The two geographies most needed for ACS are CBSAs and school districts. Is it feasible ...more »

Add datatable restrictions to XML

In another thread I read about an updated version of the available ACS tables. It would be very handy if table restrictions and Block Group availability would be included in that list. (As in Appendix E of the technical documentation http://www2.census.gov/acs2010_5yr/summaryfile/ACS_2006-2010_SF_Tech_Doc.pdf). In the XML document those restrictions could be attributes of the "concept"

Optional Latitude and Longitude Returned

It would be nice to be able to pass in an optional parameter like &coordinates=1 and have the latitude and longitude points of each result returned in a new variable. For example, a state (or block group, tract, etc) would have a coordinate field with the array of lat/lon points of the state outline. Yes it would be a larger amount of data being returned, but it's optional. To save size, the coordinates could be ...more »
