HTTP Get returning all null values

Hi,

I am doing a http get http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=user key&get=P0010001,NAME&for=state:* and this succeeds with response of 200, but the JSON elements are null. This same call used to work a few days back, now I get the following: ["P0010001","NAME","state"],["null","null","null"],["null","null","null"],...

Please help.

Thank You.

acs 2011 access issue

an application that was running last night no longer operates. It is accessing ACS 2011 5 year data at BG level with a multi-item request (fails with just 2). Were changes made that could affect this? Thank you.

Polygon, block group and census data

I would like to get census block group data for various groups that overlap with a polygon map overlay. If I can get the block groups and need say the number of Chinese of ages 18 to 34 in those block groups then how do I do a JavaScript query to get them?

General Feedback

Related APIs

For the Census team or whomever else ... the DOL APIs only seem to provide access to metadata; no statistical data. What is known of other Federal agencies having APIs that provide access to demographic-economic data?

Using Data

Problem in Virginia Data

Using the SF1 api, when I loop through the counties in Virginia, it finishes the county loop and then begins a loop through cities. I noticed it while running a nested loop for the entire US. Virginia was the only state that I noticed doing this, though there could be others. Here's the URL I'm using that generates this list of counties + cities. http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key={ikey}&get=NAME&for=county:*&in=state:51 ...more »

API key not valid

I've had an API key for weeks and just got back to my project after doing some other work. I get this error when I make a query that used to work:

 

"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.'

 

Any thoughts?
