Geocodio can help you convert coordinates or addresses into Census tracts, FIPS codes, and metropolitan and Census-designated statistical areas. Upload a spreadsheet, or use our API to add Census data programatically in bulk.
Adding Census FIPS, tract, and block codes to addresses can help you connect datasets and make sense of location data. For example, if you want to see which major cities your customers are close to, you can upload a list of your customers to Geocodio, get the Census MSAs (Metropolitan statistical areas), and then make a map or pivot table to see which cities your customers are clustered around.
As another example, banks are required to report Census MSAs, tracts, blocks, and FIPS codes to the FFIEC to ensure they are complying with federal fair lending requirements. Geocodio makes it easy to securely upload a large dataset of address data and add the Census codes, saving bank employees valuable hours in reporting time. If you are looking for a more user-friendly, faster alternative to the FFEIC geocoder, Geocodio might be what you're looking for.
Geocodio is built to handle large datasets. You can upload a file of addresses or coordinates that is up to 1 GB per upload, and upload multiple datasets simultaneously. You can also run batches of 10,000 through our API in parallel. When you add the "Census" field to your request, all of the Census identifiers will be returned for the coordinates or addresses: Census FIPS codes, blocks, tracts, MSAs, and CSAs.
Census boundaries are available back to 2010.
Geocodio can also help you add Canadian Census tracts to a spreadsheet or programatically via API.
