Duplicate (and incorrect) "Female 85 years and older" variable

I'm examining a tract in NYC. I found two different codes (P0120026 and P0120049) whose label and concept match exactly:

"label": "Female: !! 85 years and over",

"concept": "P12. Sex By Age [49]"

Furthermore, they return VASTLY different values. See queries below:

http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=[key]&get=P0120049,NAME&for=block:*&in=state:36+county:061+tract:004200

http://api.census.gov/data/2010/sf1?key=[key]&get=P0120026,NAME&for=block:*&in=state:36+county:061+tract:004200

Am I missing something obvious or it this an error?

    Elizabeth,

    Thank you very much for the bug report. Margaret is exactly right; the label for P0120026 is incorrect and it should be "Female:" (for total female population).

    I've noted this in our bug database and it should be fixed soon.

    Thanks!
