ACS 5yr 2011

If I get all of my queries for my database that I need working on the ACS 5yr 2010 API, will I be able to run the same query on Dec 6th by simply changing the 2010 in the URL to 2011?

For example, this query works now:

http://api.census.gov/data/2010/acs5?key={key}&get=B00001_001E&for=tract:*&in=state:41+county:005

On Dec 6th will it work if I submit this?:

http://api.census.gov/data/2011/acs5?key={key}&get=B00001_001E&for=tract:*&in=state:41+county:005

Thanks!!!

    Once the API is available this should work but you'll want to check the documentation to make sure nothing in the variable ID has changed, although this is rare.

    Thanks for your reply!

    My real question is: Will the 2011 data be available through the API on Dec 6th?

    The reason I ask is that if the data will NOT be available through the API, I will have to scrap all of my API work, and just go with the FTP route for updating our regional database.

    Thanks!

    Looking forward to the new data next week!

    :-)
