Are there plans to write APIs for additional datasets that are currently available? We are looking to harvest PEPAGESEX data annually...thoughts?
I have looked into it, but cannot find the answer.
Does anyone know when the ACS 5-year for 2014 will be released?
My 2012 requests (that previously returned data) now return the error - There was an error while running your query. We've logged the error and we'll correct it ASAP.

Is there a proven formula to match up slightly different lat/lng values to a street address without submitting both of them to a Geocoding service (since we've already done so and don't want to make a second api call). eg. The following coordinates are for the same street address (55 Church Street zip code 07505), but one set points to the building and the other to the street. lat : 40.9170109 long: -74.1702248 lat: ...more »
Census would like to inform everyone through this forum that we have updated the 2012 Economic Census - All Sectors: Economy-Wide Key Statistics (EWKS). It now has more summary levels and OPTAX is required. We recommend you make the necessary modifications in order to continue using this dataset without any problem.
If you have any questions or comment respond to this post or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

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 »
Hi, does anyone know how to use the census.gov's API to find the summary page of the community facts for a location (e.g. Zipcode) available on through this url http://factfinder.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/community_facts.xhtml
I have used Tele-Atlas/TomTom geocoding service which is now been discontinued. I'm trying to find an alternative that would return most or all of the same variables.
1. How do I get access to the API?
2. How is the security? My data is highly sensitive and I have to be 100% there will be no way the data can be viewed or saved.
3. I have to geocoding around 100,000 addresses. Will this be an issue?
I want to retrieve tract level data for all of New York City. I know I can do this using five different calls, one for each of the five counties. I would like to do this with a single call. I have read that the IN clause does not support this (&in=state:36+county:005,061,047,081,085 only returns records for 005). Perhaps this could be done using a place but this is currently not a supported geographic hierarchy.
Hello, I recently obtained and validated my API key. However, when I attempt to enter a test URL in my browser window with my api key I receive a message stating "A valid key must be included with each data API request. You included a key with this request, however, it is not valid. Please check your key and try again."
Newbie question. What I want to do is given an x, y coordinate, I want to pass it to a Census server and have it return data for the block group it intersects. This is an example of what I would like: http://sampleserver1.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Demographics/ESRI_Census_USA/MapServer/1/query?text=&geometry=-95.8239%2C+36.0729&geometryType=esriGeometryPoint&inSR=&spatialRel=esriSpatialRelIntersects&returnCountOnly=false&returnIdsOnly=false&returnGeometry=true&outFields=*&f=pjson ...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. This is a bit hard to test as there appears to be server side caching so if you ...more »
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 »
The ACS 5 Year API is returning incorrect data for the DP02_0024PE variable. It should be returning a percent value but it is returning a sum.
Should be %:
It is returning same as this:
I found a couple of errors in the variable list for SF 1 census 2010. For example P0050010 should be "Hispanic or Latino:" but is listed as something else on the variables page here
and the json here: http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1/variables/P0050010.json
are there any plans to add support for the 1980 Census and the ACS 2005-2009 5-year estimates? Any timeline on these data sources? They would be a great addition to the API.

Is there a specific reason that 2011 1 year data is only available by Congressional District? I've been asked by one of our business analysts, and wanted to provide an accurate answer.
Thanks in advance for any insight!
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 »
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 »
There is a limit of 50 variables in a GET. So, I can understand, sort of, the need to limit, but many of your tables have more than 50 cells. For example: [ACSSF, B04001, 0006, , 7, 109 CELLS, , FIRST ANCESTRY REPORTED, Ancestry], has 109 cells, and if I want to get Estimates plus Margin of Errors I need to get 218 variables. So, why not accept a table number parameter instead? It would make the calls much easier and ...more »
