- Zip Skinny
The site provides an interesting "first glance" at a ZIP Code area, but it should only be seen as that -- a first glance. It is not a substitute for the more thorough research you should do prior to making decisions about relocating to or conducting business in a particular location.
- Zip Who
This ZIP code demographics site was built because existing census statistics tools failed to satisfy the needs of power users. Many Web sites allow users to query the median household income of a ZIP code, but that dollar figure alone does not indicate how one neighborhood's population compares to others around the country. ZipWho.com fills this information gap by displaying a national percentile rank (0 - 99) next to every data element.
