The US Census Bureau has released its first-ever API to the public. The new US Census Bureau API allows "developers to design Web and mobile apps to explore or learn more about America's changing population and economy," according to the announcement.
The US Census is a treasure trove of valuable information for many people. From salesmen trying to market to curious people trying to learn about new cultural trends, the Census is a great source of information. Accessing this data in a computer readable form is sometimes difficult, however. The USA Today Census API simplifies the process, at least for the 2010 census.
