2020 Census Demographics by ZIP Code

2020 Census Demographics with an Easy Data Extractor

We've recently added the latest 2020 Census demographics to our product! Even though the Census Bureau hasn't released any data at the ZCTA (ZIP Code) level, we were able to read over 8 million records and map them to ZIP Codes. We have about 300 ZIP Code demographics! Please see our PDF Product Documentation for the details.

Our 2021 Census Demographics product contain the latest Census Counts (updated every 10 years), plus Estimates, updated annually. We have 2020, 2010 and 2000 population counts, plus the latest population estimates and our exclusive population projections for 5 and 10 years out. We also have educational attainment, household, family, income, age, race, gender and housing unit and many other demographics.

We've made our Census Data by ZIP Code product to be easy to use for marketers, data analysts and programmers. Our Census Data Extractor allows you to pick and choose only the Census Demographics that you need to create your own custom file. Click here for a 25 second demo of the Extractor.

2020 Census Demographics by ZIP Code

Please watch our Census Pro video which explains our product and demonstrates this powerful tool.

Our ZIP Code Census Demographics database product is tied to a ZCTA, which is usually a very close approximation of a ZIP Code. Our Census by ZIP Code data has been created by parsing out data from multiple extracts of Census data and our own processes. Some US Census data can be found on the Census Bureau's site, but we've found it difficult and very time consuming to get it the way most people want to format it, so we created this tool.

Important note: There are about 33,000 ZCTAs with demographics, and over 41,000 ZIP Codes (including PO Boxes that have no demographics, but our data maps those as well). The ‘extra’ ZIP Codes are mainly PO Boxes and business ZIP Codes where there are no residences. This product only contains ZCTAs. We have a Parent ZIP Code product which maps PO Boxes and other ZIPs which don't have a ZCTA (they are called 'Point ZIPs') to the 'parent' ZIP Code (the ZIP with Census demographics where the point ZIP is located).

If your needs differ from our current offering, please contact us. We have more ZIP Code Demographics data internally that might suit your requirement.
