I'm having a heck of a time downloading median income for zip codes on the ACS 5-year surveys. I know I'm doing something wrong but can't figure it out. I choose the survey, go to geographies, click five digit zip code tabluation area and no zip codes show up. Forgive my impertinence, but can someone help? Thank you.
Why not just use data.census.gov? If you're not very familiar with the API, data.census.gov would be much easier to get what you want.
AMI data are computed and disseminated by HUD using ACS data. Here's a link to the Excel file that provides the figure for every county: https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/il/il20/Section8-FY20…
your API call URL doesn't work. This one will give you PCI by ZCTA: https://api.census.gov/data/2019/acs/acs5?get=NAME,B19301_001E&for=zip%20code%20tabulation%20area:*
For top 10% within state…
This is data.census.gov? I find that impossible to use as well -- I've started using the API where you change the URL to get data, it sounds hard but if you start with an example, study the variables for a couple minutes you can figure out how to craft the URL to get what you want
I want to use the census api for finding that a zipcode is within the top 10% of per capita income of the state i have found the per capita income of zipcode but how to find that it exist in top 10%.
here i am attaching the url for per capita income:
api.census.gov/.../acs5 code tabulation area:*
Thanks in advance.
For top 10% within state, you'll need to do some post processing
Thank you for the reply sir,the above url is giving the PCI with their state and zipcode?Now what should i do for getting the PCI for a single state with their respected zipcodes?
Just filter the results for whatever state you're interested in. Or you might be able to designate a specific state in the API call. You'd need to review the API documentation. https://www.census.gov/data/developers/guidance/api-user-guide.Core_Concepts.html
ok thank you.
