Prevent mixed content in EasyStats

http://www.census.gov/easystats/application/ calls the jQuery Templating Plugin from http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery.templates/beta1/jquery.tmpl.js., which triggers a mixed content warning (and breaks the application in Chrome 42) when embedding EasyStats in an HTTPS page. The URL should be HTTPS or protocol-relative.

Inconsistent Output in Geocoding Services API?

Hi Everyone, First off, I want to congratulate you on putting together such a comprehensive and straightforward set of APIs. This is really excellent work, and it's a great way of making Census Bureau data more accessible. However, in integrating with the Geocoding Services API, I seem to have noticed a bit of an issue: when looking up Geographies, the results are inconsistent. In particular, if I execute an identical ...more »

Since about mid day yesterday I started to see very slow response times. Even selecting one variable is taking approximately 10 seconds. Requesting 50 is take minutes and sometime the server returns an an error: There was an error while running your query. We've logged the error and we'll correct it ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Can't get an API Key

Hi,

I've tried for several days to request an API key from the census developers site with no success. I have filled out the form trying a couple different email addresses and have not received any additional information. I've checked my spam folder in each of the email accounts and no results there either. What is my next step to get an api key?

Error in Census 2010 API document ?

Hi All, I believe that the Census 2010 API documentation (http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/variables.html) has an error for the table: P12A. Sex By Age (White Alone). It appears that both P012A026 and P012A049 are attributed as Female: !! 85 years and over. I believe that P012A026 should be 'Female' (as in the total of all females. BTW - I have *not* checked the data as of yet. The data could be correct with ...more »
