Known errors/qualificationsMetropolitan boundaries are delineated well. Rural boundaries are extrapolated in some areas. Refer to US Postal Service for latest ZIP Code routes and for exact individual addresses. Zip codes defined by the US Postal Service as "unique", "military", and "post office box" are not included in this layer as they have no defined areas.
