QuickFacts does not contain data for Postal ZIP Codes. Only States, Counties, Places, and Minor Civil Divisions (MCDs) for Puerto Rico and the United States with populations above 5000. When you search via a ZIP code QuickFacts provides a list of near matches for the geographic types contained within the application. These near matches are created from US Census Bureau ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs) which are generalized area representations of United States Postal Service (USPS) ZIP Code service areas.
Explore Census Data for ZCTAs data and surveys.
QuickFacts is an easy to use application that provides tables, maps, and charts of frequently requested statistics from many Census Bureau censuses, surveys, and programs. Profiles are available for the nation, all 50 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and all counties. Cities and towns with a population of 5,000 or more are also included.

QuickFacts begins in TABLE view with data shown for the UNITED STATES. You can change to MAP view, CHART view, or the DASHBOARD view, that shows all three views at once.
Begin typing the name of the geography or ZIP code. After the second character, a list of choices will appear on the drop down. Locate and select your area by single-clicking the mouse or by using the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter/Return key. The Enter/Return key may also be used if only one geography appears or your highlighted selection is at the top of the list. This becomes one of your selected geographies and is added to the TABLE in the first data column, moving UNITED STATES to the second data column.
Simply click on SELECT A FACT to show the dropdown list, which is grouped by topic. Scroll down to highlight the FACT you want and click on the FACT to select it. In addition, you can double click on the row of the FACT in the TABLE.
TABLE view allows six geographies in the table. To add additional geographies use the search box. As you add geographies, they are added to the TABLE in the first data column, moving other geographies to the next column to the right. If there are more than one geography present, you may delete any geography by clicking the icon. An orange circle on the TABLE icon indicates the total number of geographies currently selected. This is visible throughout the application above the data views.
There are 3 additional controls in addition to the zoom in/out and full screen controls:
Clicking on a geography opens an info window. Within the info window you can:
The new switch and toggle button are present on the map only when needed. All new controls will be pointed out to the user with a "NEW!" tooltip when first presented to the user. Hovering over the new control will give the user a description of the control's function as well as its current status if applicable.
Changing geography level is accomplished by zooming in/out. The progression as you zoom in is: States, Counties, Places & Townships. When zoomed into Places & Townships level a toggle button will be available within the upper right map controls to swap between the two.
When you select the MAP view icon, you are given a choice from your selected geographies to view one on the map. Once you click on a geography, you will see your selected geography outlined in red and all geographies at the same level. For example, if you selected a county, you will see all the counties in that state.
Geographies with numeric fact values are placed in ascending order and distributed into five groups containing the same number of geographies. The geography groups are then shaded from cyan (lowest values) to dark cyan (highest values). The value range for these groups will depend on the fact and geographies that fall within the group. Geographies with non-numeric fact values and footnotes are shaded with colors other than cyan and assigned to a specific footnote.
When viewing the entire US there are icons for Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico in the corners that allow you to focus the map directly on those locations. When the map focuses on one of these locations their associated icon changes to the 48 contiguous states an allows you to reset the map to view the entire US.
When you select he CHART view icon, you are given a choice to ‘View Selected Locations' or choose one of the selected geographies. If you chose ‘View Selected Locations', you will see a chart for all selected geographies. If you only have one geography selected, the chart will open with this geography along with all sibling geographies. For example, if you have selected a state, you will see all the states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Hover over or click on each bar in the CHART to see the actual data value.
DASHBOARD view is a combination of all three views.
