Housing (Census)

Geocodio enables you to match addresses or coordinates to data from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey on housing statistics. You can upload a spreadsheet, or use our API.

This data is for the Census Block Group. It is not for the individual household. Please note, you must provide either street + ZIP, street + city + state, an intersection, or coordinates in order to receive Census results back. We do not provide this data for ZIP codes or city/state pairs. (If your data contains locations without street addresses, you will not be charged for the data append for those locations.)

This data is provided at the Census Block Group level and is available from the most recent five-year American Community Survey, which is currently the 2021 survey results published in 2022. (The 1-year American Community Surveys do not have granularity at this level.)

You can download an example of the results when you add Census housing data to a spreadsheet of addresses here or to coordinates here.

We provide the data exactly as it is packaged by the Census Bureau in the breakouts it gives. The only change we have made is to add a "percentage" calculation to aid ease of use.

For each data point, we return the value, margin of error, and percentage.

Requests are billed as geocode + Census Housing info (i.e., two lookups). For example, if you have 100 addresses that you want ACS housing data for, that would count as 200 lookups.

You can calculate how much this will cost you and how long it will take here.
