I am trying to get the 2019, 5 year ACS data. I don't want to get the data in an excel file, I want to use a web connector to link to the data. I am trying
to incorporate this in my Tableau Dashboard. Has anyone here tried it? any information/pointers will be greatly appreciated.
There are several Census APIs, see here: https://www.census.gov/data/developers/data-sets.html
You can get a Census KEY for free, and access the APIs in a number of ways. Look at the Guidance for Developers link for helpful documentation.
