ZIP Code Demographics Database

zip code demographics Our 2017 Census ZIP Code Demographics contain the latest statistics. We have 2010 Census demographics for those stats that only change every 10 years, plus population estimates and other Census demographics which are released annually. Unique to GreatData: we release population projections for 5 and 10 years out at the ZIP Code level.

Our goal for this database is to make ZIP Code Census data both easily accessible to the non-programmer (we have a great Excel Spreadsheet, already formatted) and to save valuable hours for the programmer. Also unique to GreatData is our Census Data Extractor which allows you to pick and choose only the Census Demographics that you need and create your own custom file.

See the ‘Database Specs & Features’ section (right) for the ZIP Code Census Data included in this product and how it is categorized (population by ZIP Code data, age data, etc.) Mouse-over any category for more detail.
Included with this ZIP Code Census database is a valuable online tool that allows subscribers to pick and choose fields and even combine multiple fields. For instance, if you need a quick statistic of all kids from birth to age 17, the raw Census by ZIP Code data has these separated by male / female and then further separated into age categories: 0-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-17. Our extractor tool can combine males, females, and each age group in a single summary. Additionally, you can filter results by certain states, ZIP Codes, median income, medium ages, etc.
