I'm trying to complete a project for a local nonprofit I work with. I am trying to use the Census API to pull in certain estimates in each of the counties they work in.
I'm trying to pull in poverty estimates at the tract, sub-county, and county levels. The data I need is in the S1701 dataset under the American Community Survey. I can't seem to find the variable's I need to call the data through the API.
For example, I need the estimate for "Population for whom poverty status is determined". I can't find the variable I need in any of the tables listed here: https://www.census.gov/data/developers/data-sets/acs-1year.html
I'm new to all of this, so if anyone has any advice that would be appreciated.
