This is the basic operation for finding demographic information. Given a U.S. street address, the operation uses DOTS AddressValidation and DOTS GeoCoder US to identify the Census Bureau-assigned block identification number. The address range must exist in the Census Bureau's TIGER/Line database to find any block or neighborhood data. Otherwise ZIP level data will be returned.

Demographic results are separated into seven different categories. Every category, with the exception of UrbanClassification and CensusElements, will contain a resolution level code. This code describes how precise that group of information is. See the table below for an explanation of the codes.
