Hello All, Is there a way to return the label and or concept instead of just the call variable code e.g. Return both DP02_0001E and "HOUSEHOLDS BY TYPE!!Total households" so that the data is easily presented without further manipulation in the application. For example this would be useful in presenting the data in a table, where the table heading would be "HOUSEHOLDS BY TYPE!!Total households" instead of the more ...more »
This call works:
But not this:
I get this:
error: error: unknown variable 'DP02_0067PE'
B* variables work with the same call specification.
I'm still a newbie and am trying to find a way to pull geographies via the API.
For example, is there a way for our application to only store state names or FIPS codes, then pull all other possible geographies via the API? Or, do we need to store all the needed geographies on our end?
Complete Newbie here. Trying to systematically get started. Have looked through the documentation but not exactly sure where to start when it comes to ACS data. Is there a place with all the possible URI's , URL parameters and explanations , so that if I was making a call I could look through a list and easily select the parameters and corresponding values .
While using the link above, I get the data for approx 800 counties, but there are more than 3000 counties in the country. Is the data available for all counties? If yes, how do I get the data?
I'm having trouble getting the geo-boundaries of a specific block.
For example, let's say I have the following info:
How can I know where this specific block is? In other words, how do I get the geo-boundaries of this specific block so that I can map this block with latitude,longitude coordinates?
... seems very slow. Can we expect this speed or is it just today ... or maybe something else?
I think there may be small glitch in the API for table B05006 for the 5-year ACS for 2012 -- something about the terminal, 161th variable: The following call works fine for 2011: http://api.census.gov/data/2011/acs5?get=B05006_161E,NAME&for=county:*&in=state:22 but when I try the same for 2012, there's trouble: http://api.census.gov/data/2012/acs5?get=B05006_161E,NAME&for=county:*&in=state:22 The other variables ...more »
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 »
Following up on my request of 10 months ago ... it does not appear that any urban population or housing unit items are populated at the block level.
This is a request for Census to populate those few 2010 SF1 urban/rural update fields for all summary levels.
The link at http://api.census.gov/data/eits/eits_program_code_RESCONST.xml provides us with most of the information we need to use the API to access data for Residential Construction in the "Economic Indicators Time Series" data. What appears to be missing are variables for the "get" parameter. Manually downloaded data sets (non-api) do not reveal or hint at any variables that could be used either. So maybe there is ...more »
An ACS 2013 CBSA "name" in the API call is "for=metropolitan+statistical+area/micropolitan+statistical+area"
That does not work for summary level 314.
What is the spelling of the "name" for a metropolitan division? Guessing,
"for=metropolitan+division" does not work.
Can you please provide a full sample? complete with a MD code.
I'm new to using the API and was wondering if you have seen examples of using the API to retrieve data needed to build a population pyramid for population of a zip code.
If there are no examples, I would like to build it with a team and add it to the forum for public use. Let me know if you want to collaborate.
Hi - I'm relatively new to the API, and have been using it to pull several reports. Recently I was asked to find S0802 MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION TO WORK BY SELECTED CHARACTERISTICS . When I look on Fact Finder I can see the variable, however I'm unable to find it via the API (in the variable definition files for ACS). I'm sure I'm missing something basic, so any direction would be much appreciated.
