ZIP Codes

ZIP Codes are administrative entities of the U.S. Postal Service. As such:

  • They do not coincide with the Census Bureau's geographic or political areas.
  • They change according to postal requirements.
  • They do not have specific boundaries.
  • Their implied boundaries do not necessarily follow clearly identifiable physical features.

ZIP Codes are summarized in the economic census for individual 5-digit ZIP Codes in the Retail Trade sector and several of the Services sectors. These statistics are limited to a count of the establishments in each industry by sales/receipts/revenue-size range of establishments.

Note: These ZIP Codes are reported by businesses or coded from addresses. They are not the ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs) published in the Decennial Census.
