Greetings,

Trying to find a FREE Web Service for the US Census. I've been searching High and low. Bunch of people have paid access. I need FREE (or dang near free) for a non-profit.

Any Clues?

Thanks,
sleeper

This is the Data Tools page from the Census Bureau: http://www.census.gov/main/www/access.html  On another page, they have a lot of 'datasets' available.

I'm going to leave this question open for few more hours, but it's starting to look like the answer is NO, there is NO FREE API for the Census. Best idea seems to be the datasets Dave wrote about. But that looks like a ton of man-hours to pull that together...
