Quarterly ZIP Codes (USA) with Census Demographic Data
Do you make business decisions based on postal data? If so, Caliper quarterly ZIP Code updates will ensure you are using the latest data. The 5-digit ZIP Code Boundaries Data CD contains a nationwide area database with ZIP Codes for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the territories. It also includes a point database of ZIP Code centroids and 3-digit ZIP Code Areas for the entire country. Caliper updates this file quarterly to provide up-to-date access to United States Postal Service changes.
The Data CD ships with Census demographic data at no additional cost, including new fields for household income from the 2010 5-year American Community Survey and new fields for age, race, gender, Hispanic origin, households by type, and housing tenure from the 2010 Census.
