We can throw it on the BetaNYC github page... we can set up a whole repo for raw data as we'll come across this again.

What I have is 3 files that are about 20 mb in total.  I worked on them manually in Excel so don't have a script to go along with them.

I concur :-) I'd also like to have access to the data. If Max (or anyone else) has a script to create the csv, that would also be nice to have in a github repo. I'm happy to host it myself if there are any issues that way (I'd also be happy to port any script to Python or R for those who might want it).

Maybe you should share the data via a github repo?

I called the Census department helpline for this data, and they said that some people have found import scripts online. I’ve searched around but didn’t find anything. Anyone have any ideas?
