API Technical Discussions

API Variable Question for ACS2011 5 Year

Preface: New to API Calls & Census Data (not sure the proper Campaign to post on)


Curious, how can I more efficiently pull data through the API without having to specify each individual Unique ID (found in the ACS2011_5-Year_TableShells.xls file)?



If I wanted to pull all data for Table ID: B01001 what would my {&get=} be?


Currently, I am using each individual Unique ID as so:



Is there a syntax for spanning Unique ID values within a single table?


And why is it that I cannot use the Unique ID value as is outlined in the ACS2011_5-YearTableShells.xls file, rather I need to split the value after the Table ID with an underscore and Unique ID value, as so: B01001002 needs to become B01001_002E inorder for the call to work.


Any assistance would be most helpful.
