Using the US Census Plugin

Has anyone out there worked out how to use the Census USA plugin?

For example, I've got a dataset that contains fips codes at the state and county levels.  I want to add population, say 2019 or 2020, maybe just released.

I've read the plugin page

http://localhost:11000/plugins/census-us/summary/

I've gone to the dataiku.com page

https://www.dataiku.com/product/plugins/census-us/

I've gone to what I think is the git repo.

https://github.com/dataiku/dss-plugin-census-us

However, I'm left with very little idea of how to make practical use of this tool.

Thoughts?  I'm doing this for two reasons

  • To enrich data in a project I'm working on
  • To learn something about the census plugin.

For now I'm going to default to downloading the data from here and importing.

Hey @tgb417 it's like opening a gift on your birthday with some brand new US Census data to play with!

While you wait for a more complete response, I wanted to use this opportunity to plug (no pun intended) some resources from the Knowledge Base:

I hope this helps!
