"Of all the features I added, automatically filling city and state names when a user entered a zip code turned out to be what my users loved the most. It not only took the least time, it also cost the least to implement. I still can't believe it!"

USPS Zip Code List with City, State, County, Latitude and Longitude

We provide you with the official USPS zip code database with the list of every valid zip code and their acceptable city and state names across the entire USA. That’s over 50,000 records!

There are over 42,000 unique zip codes each with a “primary” city and state name, and some with more than one city name. Our database gives you every acceptable city names, plus the county name and number. Easily let your users choose the one they need without spelling a city name or state abbreviation EVER again!

There is also a list of zip codes with city names the USPS considers "Not Acceptable", and the recommended city name. Easily use this data to clean up your addresses with the correct city name.

File Formats

  • Table in a Microsoft Access 2000-2013 MDB database (works with Microsoft Access 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013)
  • Table in a Microsoft Access 97 MDB database

Microsoft Access Databases

The Microsoft Access zip code database also includes additional resources beyond zip codes:

  • A table with a list of state abbreviations for US, Canada, Mexico, and Australia
  • A table with a list of all countries
  • A way to create a zip code table of just the official city names for each zip code
  • A sample form with source code showing how to automatically fill the city and state when a user enters a zip code
  • A table with unacceptable city names for certain zip codes

ASCII Files

  • Contains fields for Zip Code, Primary Status, City Name, State, County Number, County Name, Latitude, Longitude
  • Additional file contains Zip Codes, States and Primary City only.

Subscription

The USPS does not sell their zip code data. Anyone claiming to "sell" the database does not have a legitimate license from the USPS. The USPS also doesn’t want people with outdated information, so the data is only available on a subscription basis.  Because zip codes are added and modified regularly, the USPS requires that you update your zip code database on a regular basis (at least once a year). To facilitate this, we provide the zip code database on a subscription basis that entitles you to the current copy plus 11 monthly copies.

Once you sign up, we’ll contact you with the URL, user name, and password for downloading the data. On a monthly basis, when the new data is available, you’ll receive an email notifying you that you can download it.

Getting and maintaining an accurate list of US zip codes and associated city and state names couldn’t be easier!

Licensing

FMS has licensed the list of USPS zip codes for you.  Your use of the zip code database is subject to their restrictions:

  • The underlying zip code data is property of the US Postal Service. You may not claim ownership of it, nor do you have the rights to re-distribute it.
  • Licensing is on a per copy basis. If the application with the USPS data only uses one copy of the data, only 1 license is required regardless of the number of users that run the application in that location. However, if the data is copied and distributed (even if it's on the same machine or LAN), then a license must be purchased for each copy of the database.
  • Licensing is valid during the period of your subscription.

Complete licensing information is available here.
