2016 ZIP Code statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau

The U.S. Census Bureau’s County Business Patterns (CBP) program has released its 2016 ZIP Code statistics. This is an addition to CBP's recent release of U.S., state, metropolitan area, county, and congressional district statistics. The ZIP Code data cover more than 7.7 million U.S business establishments.

Employment and payroll data are available for all U.S. ZIP Codes with a business establishment. Data for the number of establishments by employment size are available for nearly 1,200 industries.

CBP's ZIP Code statistics are obtained from Census Bureau reports and administrative records from other federal agencies. CBP defines employment as all full- and part-time employees who were on the payroll during the pay period that includes March 12.

Statistics are presented in comma separated value (CSV) files for download and manipulation on the CBP website. CBP data can be accessed using multiple tools available via the Census Bureau website, including American FactFinder and Census Business Builder.
