Demographics by ZIP Code Database

Census Data By ZIP Code with an Easy Data Extractor

Our 2024 Demographics by ZIP Code database contains the very latest counts. All estimates include the latest decennial census count combined with estimated yearly increases to-date. These estimates are the most accurate data available. When a demographic has both an estimate and a count, we highly recommend that you use the estimate.

GreatData’s unique Census Data Extractor makes this database easily accessible to the non-programmer and saves valuable hours for the programmer. It allows you to create your own custom files by picking and choosing only the Census Demographics needed. Watch the video below for a quick demonstration.

Demographic data by ZIP Code Database

Our ZIP Code Census Demographics database is tied to a ZCTA, which is the Census Bureau’s approximation of a ZIP Code. They are the same code, but not always an exact overlay. Many Postal Service ZIP Codes are specific to PO Boxes and businesses where there are no residences; thus, they have no population. Those are not included in Census data. Of roughly 41,000 ZIP Codes, there are about 33,000 matching ZCTAs. If you need census demographics for all ZIP Codes – including P.O. Box only ZIP Codes and those representing non-area points on a map – please consider our Parent ZIP Code Product to use as a cross-reference.

Our Census by ZIP Code database has been created by parsing data from multiple extracts of ZIP Code Census data and other sources.
