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 »

API Technical Discussions

Demographics by zip code

Newbie here. I searched the api documentation and still do not fully understand how to use it.

 

I would like to find the average house value for a given zip code from the 2010 census data. Possible?

 

If so, please provide an example URL for 09210.

 

Can the same call be made for multiple zip codes that make up an area?

 

Thanks!

In 1990 sf1, missing variable Amer Ind/Esk/Aleut Males 12-13 yrs

In the first 1990 census table, there is no variable for Amer Ind/Esk/Aleut Males 12-13 yrs. In the age by race and gender group, the variables skip from P0120131 to P0120133, so presumably P0120132 is the missing age range. Using the variable in the data call results in an unknown variable error.

Using Data

subject matter search

Census has added the very helpful restructured subject matter item lists (eg, http://api.census.gov/data/2000/sf3/variables.html). Thank you. I am seeking an easy way to search for two or more keywords (eg, Age, Hispanic) in a nonphrase structure that will highlight rows/items that meet that condition. ... by searching on the unmodified html. Any thoughts on this? Thank you.

Bugs / Problems

pop-up blocker is hindering access to forum

When I'm on http://www.census.gov/developers/ and try to click the link to visit the developer forum, Chrome sees it as a pop-up and blocks it. If I'm not paying attention, it appears that the url doesn't work.
