America's Economy App as an Innovation Platform

We have published a very successful mobile application of economic indicators. Now help us take this app to the next level. What other indicators or mashups are possible to deliver timely information or services? How can we build upon this app to be a foundation for deriving valuable insights through big data and analytics?

Economic data through the API

Are there plans to make economic data available through the API? It seems that most of the API focuses on location based demographic data but I am sure something like NAICS level data would be quite popular. Is this available somewhere else that I am not aware of? I have only seen http://www.census.gov/developers/

'Get' variables for Economic Indicators Time Series data

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 »
