API resource not available

I've just started working with the API today. I started by using sample queries such as:

http://api.census.gov/data/2012/popproj/pop?get=TOTAL_POP,RACE&SEX=1&YEAR=2012&key=

It worked fine earlier today, but now I keep getting the "resource not available" error.

EDIT - For clarification, it worked in the AM for a period of about 1 hour. I tried again about 6 hours later, and it didn't work for a period of about 1 hour. I then tried late in the evening and it worked.

My question is about the availability of the API. I would like to know if there are any availability numbers that you can provide.

Thanks!

  1. That URL seems to work for me (with my own key). Are you sure it is not your ISP ? I have have very few reliability issues since working with the Census API.

      Thanks for your reply. I added an edit to my post to help clarify. Maybe it was just an anomaly. But it would be interesting to see availability stats anyway.
