ZIPList Can-USA TM (August 2021)
This database conveniently combines two of our other products, ZIPList5 Plus and ZIPList Canada, into a single ZIP code database which covers both the USA and Canada in a single product.
This data file lists every city and ZIP or Postal CodeOM for all of the USA and Canada, as well as telephone area codes, time zone and daylight saving time. This database includes all recent area code changes. Use this database with popular commercial database programs such as MS Access, dBase, Paradox, FoxPro, etc. Available for immediate download in native Access, dBase, and Paradox formats. You can also incorporate this data into your own applications to look up the city and state/province based on ZIP/Postal CodeOM or area code.
The City field identifies a city name associated with the ZIP/Postal CodeOM. There can be several different city names associated with a particular ZIP or postal code. If so, that ZIP/Postal CodeOM may appear in several different records, each with a different city name. The Preferred field (described below) identifies whether the city name in this record is the primary city name or an alias (alternate) city name for this ZIP/Postal CodeOM.
Note that some city names in Quebec contain special diacritical marks. The character set employed for these characters is ISO-8859-1. An English-only version of this product is available for those applications which cannot use the French spellings.
The State/Province field contains the standard 2-character abbreviation for the state or province.
The ZIP/Postal CodeOM field contains only valid ZIP/Postal CodeOMs currently defined by the US Postal Service or Canada Post Corporation (CPC). Obsolete ZIP/Postal CodeOMs which have been "retired" from service are not included in this database.
The Area code is the "most prevalent" area code for that one Postal CodeOM. If multiple area codes apply to that one Postal CodeOM, only the primary area code is listed. Overlay area codes are not listed.
The County Name field identifies the "most prevalent" county for the 5-digit ZIP code listed in a given record. Note: This field applies to ZIP code (USA) records only. In all Canadian records this field is empty.
The Time zone field always contains the standard time zone designation for a particular Postal CodeOM. If that Postal CodeOM falls within a political entity which participates in daylight saving time (DST) during the summer months, the DST field is set to "Y". Otherwise the DST field is set to "N".
The Country field contains a single character which identifies whether the record is a USA record ("U") or a Canadian record ("C").
The ZIP Code type field (USA only) identifies special ZIP codes used for PO Boxes, companies, or the military.
The Preferred flag can have one of three states, which indicate how that city name can be used for delivery of mail to the associated ZIP/Postal CodeOM. The three states are:
The one preferred name record has the preferred field set to "P", while all alias name records have the preferred field set to "A" or "N". Note that in some cases a particular name may be preferred for some ZIP codes but an alias name for other ZIP codes. This frequently occurs when the exact political boundary between adjacent cities is obscure, leading people to use the two city names interchangeably within the boundary area.
The County FIPS code (USA only) is a 5-digit numeric field containing a unique numeric identification assigned to that county by the US government. The County FIPS code field and the County Name field identify the "most prevalent" county for the 5-digit ZIP code listed in a given record.
