Census.gov's Data API is Now in Beta

BY Nick Judd | Thursday, June 7 2012

Census.gov/developers is now online, and the U.S. Census Bureau is offering developers beta API access to a summary table from the 2010 U.S. Census and to data from the 2010 American Community Survey.

This makes it easier for developers to build web applications using Census Bureau data.

Nextgov reported earlier this month that this move was on the way. Last month, federal officials announced a new strategy for digital government that calls for all U.S. agencies to provide API access to two "high-value" sets of data.
