    Hay Fox - I wanted to access a summary of the population statistics summarized in race white, Hispanic, black, and others at a census block level. Am very new for this forum and I would be glad if some one gives me a feedback on this area specially on APIs which would be used like this.

    Hi,
    Hi, I have signed up for the API key but have not received an email for more than 12hrs. Is there any other way to apply for the API key?

    Any reason why the FIPs codes are pulling down on the API requests?

    Hello - entering this API address - https://api.census.gov/data/2018/zbp?get=ESTAB,EMPSZES&for=zipcode:20002&NAICS2017=72 - returns the following:
    [["ESTAB","EMPSZES","NAICS2017","zip code"],
    ["250","001","72","20002"],
    ["71","210","72","20002"],
    ["36","220","72","20002"],
    ["68","230","72","20002"],
    ["56","241","72","20002"],
    ["17","242","72","20002"]]
    Does this mean there are 250 establishments with 1-210 employees; 71 establishments with 210-220 employees; 36 establishments with 220 employees; etc. (and for NAICS 72 in Zip code 20002)

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew why I cannot access HST10 data after 2014 for some products

    @halldjh65

    I've just started working with Census APIs, and so far I'm loving what this can do to improve my work flow when working with American Community Survey Data.

    For most of the data work I'm doing, my primary geographic level is the county subdivision. BUT, I also like to include data for each of the counties I'm working with, and the state level.

    I know how to access EACH of those three levels, but I'm not sufficiently familiar with JSON programming protocols to know how (or whether) I can combine multiple geographic LEVELS in a single API data call?

    I have been looking at the EXAMPLES found here [https://api.census.gov/data/2019/acs/acs5/examples.html], and don't see any that combine multiple geographic levels, but I strongly suspect this is something I should be able to do?

    Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

    Hey there, does anyone have any advice on activating my Census Data API key? @halldjh65

    I just received it via email, but when I click the Please click here to activate your key link I get an error:

    You've attempted to validate an unknown key. If it has been more than 48 hours since you submitted your request for this API key then the request has been removed from the system. Please request a new key and activate it within 48 hours.

    I see similar error reports from 2020 but I'm wondering if this is working now. Thanks!

    I read this: "for general q/a's about programmatic access to Census data. join us on Slack: https://join.slack.com/t/uscensusbureau/shared_invite/zt-99lfnpsz-YYpaXy5vOSFMlVibmFMTig
    but when I try to join the Slack workspace it seems to require a census.gov email address. Is there a way to contact the admin?

    @jlw253 you shouldn't need one. Does the link above not work for you?

    @jlw253
    @loganpowell Unfortunately no. I am prompted to use my census.gov e-mail or login w/ Google. When I choose Google, I am met with an error because my e-mail doesn't match one of the allowed domains. (and the note below the inoperative "continue" button says: Don’t have an @census.gov email address? Contact the workspace administrator at U.S. Census Bureau for an invitation.)

    For a given address, I am trying to figure out if it falls in an Urban or Rural area, but the API results either provides the field UR which seems to be always have no value or UR field does not show up at all.

    Hi I'm new to the census APIs. How do I use two variables together? For example, for acs5 2019, I can get people from 40-44 (B01001_014E) and I can run a separate query for married population (B06008_003E). But what is the syntax for both variables - married people ages 40-44?

    Hi I am trying to use the geocoding api and I keep getting cors errors, anyone know what I should do?
    This is an example request- https://geocoding.geo.census.gov/geocoder/locations/onelineaddress?address=4600+Silver+Hill+Rd%2C+Washington%2C+DC+20233&benchmark=2020&format=jsonp
    Jonas Almeida
    @jonasalmeida

    you have three choices -

    1) ask geocoding.geo.census.gov to set Access-Control-Allow-Origin header to *:

    {"Access-Control-Allow-Origin": "*"}

    I think they should, public facing data apis should be CORS enabled.

    2) ask geocoding.geo.census.gov to take jsonp seriously and return it as a function call. This is typically done with a callback parameter, say, callback=someFun, causing the response to be someFun(<JSONdata>). This would allow you to get the data through a script tag where you call the function in your code you want to consume the data.

    3) deploy your own proxy with that CORS header set, such that making that api call will be returned with CORS enabled. I tend to do this with nodejs which comes with a nice non-blocking event listener.
