Middleburg, VA (March
5, 2019) - How
does DMA ZIP® Code data provided by Nielsen® compare
to Designated Market ZIP® Code data provided by
TRUCKADS®? Taking into account updates from the
USPS, ZIP Codes are the same, at a much lower price.
https://wikipedia.org, in 2015 there were a
little over 42,000 ZIP® Codes in the United States.
ZIP® Codes are determined by the
United States Postal Service (USPS) and are
constantly updated and maintained by them. We
update our ZIP® Codes from the USPS, once every
quarter thru out the year. According to the USPS,
annual ZIP® Code updates amount to less than 0.0025%
of the total number of ZIP® Codes. That's about
2 ZIP Codes per state. These days, very few ZIP
codes are deleted or added each year.
ZIP® Codes are used for tracking U.S. mail and gathering
geographical statistics in the United States. Because
ZIP® Codes are the cornerstone of the USPS mail
distribution system, USPS has long resisted changing
them for any reason other than to improve the efficiency
of mail delivery.
