Relatively new to the ACS but have managed to pull a few key variables I need at the zip code level from the API. One variable I have not been able to access, however, has been property tax payments --- the IPUMS variable PROPTX99. Can anyone point me to the API variable name or know this is available?
Many thanks in advance,
Best place to find these things is in the Table Shells file, available here: https://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/summary_file/2019/documentation/user_tools/ACS2019_Table_Shells.xlsxTable…
One follow up to this question --- I'm trying to pull real estate taxes in 2009 by county, but I'm getting an error that the variable doesn't exist, even though the table shells and documentation says it should.
For 2009, total property tax data should be stored in B25102_001E (see documentation in the table shells https://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/summary_file/2009/documentation/5_year/user_tools/ACS2009_5-Year_TableShells.xls ), but my API pull isn't working.
The URL I'm using is as follows: https://api.census.gov/data/`year'/acs/acs5?get=NAME,B25102_0021&for=county:*
Anyone have any ideas what's going on?
Small correction: the URL should be
