Data in the ranking table are part of the ProximityOne national ZIP Code-Congressional District dataset. See additional details.
Use the ranking table to view a congressional district by ZIP code and selected associated demographics for each ZIP code portion in that congressional district. Examine how split ZIP codes are split by specific congressional districts.

ZIP Code Tabulation Areas
Data presented in the ranking table sum to the total population/housing units for the corresponding state. The demographic characteristics for each census block in each state are aggregated into a ZIP-Congressional District combination.
There are many instances of ZIP-Place combinations that show zero or nearly zero population. These areas are often geographic slivers, almost lines.
While congressional district boundaries cover the U.S. wall-to-wall, Census 2010 ZIP Code Tabulation Areas are comprised of populated census blocks and do not cover the the U.S. wall-to-wall from a geographic perspective.
