I'm a pretty new GIS programmer and I'm trying to run a Locator Report in ArcPy with no success.

I'm wondering if there are any other software packages that can accomplish the same thing but with open source code?

Not much; you have the ability to download the US Census/Demographics data into your own DB and them extrapolate your own report; there are outside sources of data in the US that commercially massage the data like ESRI does but for a out of the box answer like that you are really limited.
