Hi everyone, Since some fips code change between to census campaign due to renaming or stuff like that, I was thinking of trying to use GNIS codes (hoping they don't change as much). It says here http://www.census.gov/developers/geo/ : 'Every query must include a geography, and this API supports both FIPS and GNIS geography codes.'. However I was not able to find an example of url that use it so I don't know what the ...more »
Experiencing from no server access to seriously degraded operation around 3:00 pm ET. Further info on this? Thank you.
ACS folks post this partial update re ACS 2012 API access:
Can you please share what ACS 2012 1 year data will be accessible when?
for item DP02_0103E ... this works for CA 12 but does not for many/most other districts eg, AL 01, AZ 01, ID 01, ID 02 ...

Can anyone suggest me how to solve this issue.
Prompt response would be highly appreciated.

A statistical test is not appropriate. An '-' entry in the estimate column indicates that either ...more »
The API is experience some unusually slow response times today. We are working to address. Thanks for your patience.
Will the API servers shut down if there is a federal government shutdown? And if so, what error code can we expect?
Due to the lapse in government funding, census.gov and all online survey collection requests will be unavailable until further notice.
Updates regarding government operating status and resumption of normal operations can be found at http://www.usa.gov.
Websites affected by this shutdown are all census.gov hosted websites, are listed at
I want to know if there is any way to access the population of individual country using the API.
IS there any webservice or feature which will give me the city value for the passed coordinates. Currently, the FCC API returns FIPS Code for the coordinates, is there a way to send this FIPS code and get the city value back, any ideas, thoughts will be highly appreciated.
I would like to access specific population data for Black African America population data by state, county and city. Is this possible today? If so how do I access the data to use for an App? If not, can this feature be created?
I've seen multiple links to a dead URL for a list of states and their codes. This needs to be corrected.
