A colleague is getting the following errors using R API's that have been working until now …
We are getting error while downloading 2008-12 ACS block group variables using R API’s. We have used “get_census” and “tidy census” API libraries to download the BG level ACS data earlier. But now getting the error as "Geography does not exist".
Here are package specific errors:
Getting data from the 2008-2012 5-year ACS
Using FIPS code '06' for state 'CA'
Error: Your API call has errors. The API message returned is error: unknown/unsupported geography hierarchy.
The Census Bureau returned the following error message: error: unknown/unsupported geography hierarchy
Any ideas? Any recent changes in the API?
