ACS5 2010- Query Error

I get the following error:

There was an error while running your query. We've logged the error and we'll correct it ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience.

when running this query:

http://api.census.gov/data/2010/acs5?key={YOUR_KEY}&get=B08124_056E&for=state:*

Thoughts?

  1. Andrew,

    Thanks for the bug report. I did some digging and B08124_056E is not a valid variable for the 2010 ACS 5yr summary data despite the fact that it is in our documentation and configuration. We will correct this so that the API returns a more sane error message.

    In the meantime, I think this variable will get you what you're looking for:
