The ACS API includes geographic summary levels above the state level, the SF1 and SF3 API do not. I would like to see those levels added.
API keys are a barrier to entry, and are somewhat pointless for web apps where anyone can view source and grab a key
SharePoint is gainig ground as the primary collaborative platform in the Bureau. For any collaborative team (Teamsites in SharePoint) a SharePoint Calendar is available but either not used or out of sync, or manually replicated with Notes Calendar. Can we live without a real integration to Notes Calendar for long?
This is a request to add access to the Census 2010 SF1 113th Congressional District data scheduled for release on 4/11/13. Also repeating the request to add school district level access for existing Census 2010 SF1 data.
Appears Census 2010 school districts not among data enhancements. Can these data be made accessible? Thank you.
The school district codes are unique within state irrespective of the type (U, S, E). Most users are interested in a few districts by name/id, all districts in a state/region or all districts in the U.S. Also, just having the state+district code provides... more »
Since all but 2 MSAs are included in the ACS 1 year estimates, most users would benefit from having most recent (ACS 2011 1 year) data for MSAs, unless comparing the MSA with subMSA geography.
This is a request to add MSA ACS 2011 1 year (also ACS 2010 and Census 2010 even better)... more »
Have reviewed access to the ACS 2011 data by school district. Looks good. Very much need the same for ACS 2010 and Census 2010 SF1 (particularly the single year of age by gender tables iterated by race/origin, but pretty much all of it).
Thanks to all of you who have been working to make the API resources available.
Since United States is a diversity country. People speak different languages over here. Different language represent different culture, and different market. We need language speaker map.
I'm working on a project that would be greatly enhanced by offering the ability to query the database for the number of disabled individuals in a given area.
This data can be found by clicking through the census site, so I wonder why it's not available via the API?
I wish I didn't have to tell users they needed to do their own clicking on this, I'd much rather grab that data for them automatically.
It would be nice if the API query could capability include SUMLEV 101 place fields. The Census SF1 documentation does include place fields for SUMLEV 101, but I assume the API only has a subset of 101 implemented.
These 2 API queries do NOT work.
APIs structured somewhat like these to access the underlying data as used in the new Census "Americas Economy" app is very much needed ... with as much geographic drill-down as feasible.
The two geographies most needed for ACS are CBSAs and school districts. Is it feasible... more »
In another thread I read about an updated version of the available ACS tables. It would be very handy if table restrictions and Block Group availability would be included in that list. (As in Appendix E of the technical documentation http://www2.census.gov/acs2010_5yr/summaryfile/ACS_2006-2010_SF_Tech_Doc.pdf). In the XML document those restrictions could be attributes of the "concept"
Yes it would be a larger amount of data being returned, but it's optional. To save size, the coordinates could be... more »
