Discovering Census data

You’re probably thinking: “How am I supposed to know what codes to use inside those parameters?” - or - “Where did that "cbp" & "ESTAB" stuff come from?” The data sets covered by the CitySDK are vast. As such, this is the steepest part of the learning curve. But, don’t worry, there are a number of different resources available to assist you in your quest:

  1. The Census Developers’ Microsite
  2. The Census Discovery Tool.
  3. Census Slack and Gitter developer communities.
  4. Data Experts
