Issues with API - NO Date or response.

I'm trying the following call and getting nothing. When I put it into the browser the page just hangs. The response says the server received it and then it stops. I'm calculating the average age of each city in the USA. Here is the request (note I removed my key) http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=[yourkey]&get=PCT0120157,PCT0120158,PCT0120159,PCT0120160,PCT0120161,PCT0120162,PCT0120163,PCT0120164,PCT0120165,PCT0120166,PCT0120167,PCT0120168,PCT0120169,PCT0120170,PCT0120171,PCT0120172,PCT0120173,PCT0120174,PCT0120175,PCT0120176,PCT0120177,PCT0120178,PCT0120179,PCT0120180,PCT0120181,PCT0120182,PCT0120183,PCT0120184,PCT0120185,PCT0120186,PCT0120187,PCT0120188,PCT0120189,PCT0120190,PCT0120191,PCT0120192,PCT0120193,PCT0120194,PCT0120195,PCT0120196,PCT0120197,PCT0120198,PCT0120199,PCT0120200,PCT0120201,PCT0120202,PCT0120203,PCT0120204,PCT0120205,PCT0120206&for=place:36&in=state:99990 ...more »

XML Documentation Mislabel

I just wanted to share a labeling error we have run across in the 2010 SF1 API Variables XML.

State Legislative Districts in ACS 2008-2012

Using the mapping function on FactFinder for estimates from the most recent 5 year ACS shows current State Legislative districts (effective Jan 1, 2013). This is congruent with what is listed on the first ...more »

Everyone,

 

We identified that the problem was in a configuration that was accidentally released.
