You can add new ZIP/Postal Codes using Add/Edit ZIP Codes. When you enter the Zip Code, ACS automatically enters in the City and State fields.

You can also use Add/Edit ZIP Codes to change the city and state associated with each ZIP/Postal Code. Changing existing ZIP Code information does not change current addresses in ACS. City and state information for new address entries only are affected.

You can edit ZIP Codes, and delete ZIP/Postal Codes that are no longer needed. However, deleting ZIP/Postal Code information only affects future use. Current address information with the deleted ZIP Code information are not affected.

Caution

Since numerous records are changed, we recommend performing a manual backup before editing or deleting ZIP Codes. In addition, deleting a ZIP Code affects all ACS modules and datasets.
