  FIPS 55-3 Class Code Definitions
C2: Identifies an incorporated place that also serves as a primary county division because, although the place is coextensive with a minor civil division (MCD), the Census Bureau, in agreement with State officials, does not recognize the MCD for presenting census data because the MCD is a nonfunctioning entity; applies to Iowa and Ohio only.
C5: Identifies an incorporated place that also serves as a primary county division; that is, it is not included in any adjacent primary county division of class T or Z. For example, Boston, MA, is legally a primary division of the county and recognized as an incorporated place and, therefore, is coded C5.
These entities are coded as places, but also as nonfunctioning primary county divisions numbered in the 90000 series in order to maintain their alphabetic sequence within the nonfunctioning MCD's in these States.

Place Maps For places not covered on MMS or VMS sheets where most of the development is contained within the corporate limits of a municipality or within the boundaries established for a census designated place (CDP), the Bureau uses place maps.
As with the place maps, all area covered by the place-and-vicinity map is shaded on the county map and the place-and-vicinity map is considered to be an inset to the county map.
Allocations, or assignments of acceptable codes in place of unacceptable entries, are needed most often when an entry for a given item is lacking or when the information reported for a person or housing unit on that item is inconsistent with other information for the person or housing unit.

Codes for Entities The list of FIPS State and county codes appears in Appendix A. A list of valid codes and names for legal entities (e.g., places and county subdivisions) other than counties and county equivalents does not appear in the 1992 TIGER/Line file documentation.
Dependent places are part of the county subdivision; the place's county subdivision code is the same as the underlying county subdivision(s).
Independent places are separate from the adjoining county subdivisions and have their own county subdivision code (or codes if the place lies in multiple counties).

 Census Appendix A: 1990 Technical Documentation
The structure, format, and meaning of FIPS codes used in the census are shown in the 1990 census Geographic Identification Code Scheme; in the data dictionary portion of the technical documentation for summary tape files, CD-ROM's, and microfiche.
The objective of the FIPS codes is to improve the use of data resources of the Federal Government and avoid unnecessary duplication and incompatibilities in the collection, processing, and dissemination of data.
This code is assigned on the basis of the geographic sequence of each State within each census division; the first digit of the code is the code for the respective division.

While all of these codes are somewhat readily available at various locations on the web, we think it will be very convenient to have a 1-stop site where they are all collected in one place and in a consistent, compact format.
This scheme and the corresponding 4-digit FIPS codes were in effect for about 20 years, and were used for tabulating the results of both the 1990 and the 2000 decennial censuses.
The state FIPS code is displayed as the first detail line of the state-level reports, along with the standard 2-character state postal abbreviation.

If place names are duplicated within a state and they represent distinctly different areas, a separate code is assigned to each place name alphabetically by primary county in which each place is located; or if both places are in the same county, alphabetically by their legal descriptions (for example, "city" before "village").
Incorporated places are those reported to the U.S. Census Bureau as legally in existence on January 1, 1990, under the laws of their respective states.
An incorporated place is established to provide governmental functions for a concentration of people as opposed to a minor civil division, which generally is created to provide services or administer an area without regard, necessarily, to population.

Geocoding is the process of assigning geographic codes (geocodes) to addresses so that address-related data can be viewed on a map, and more.
In general, geocoding is the process used to locate an address on a map and/or assign geographic codes (geocodes) to one or many addresses.
Also, for many operations, you might need to see the geographic codes for areas on each side of the street where an address is located (such as the city).

HOW TO USE THIS FILE
Not available--The code would be shown except it had not been determined when the files were prepared (for example, metropolitan area code on a county summary level (050) on STF 1A).
9 Not in--This indicates a "remainder of" an area, such as a place code in the portion of a county subdivision not in a place, or the summary level is not part of any area to which the code field applies, such as a summary level which is not in an Alaska Native Regional Corporation.
For example, in the division code description on the data dictionary (position 89), the code for the Pacific Division is indicated as "9." This "9" should be interpreted as the division code, not as "not in," the standard code for "9." Chart 1.

 Address Matching and Geocoding Resources
The underlying principle used in the address matching involves assigning geographic codes (such as a census tract or school district) and latitude-longitude based on the address location matched to a street line segment.
A standardized naming convention is used of the form MSSCCCT.EXT where M is a constant, SS is the FIPS state code, CCC is the county FIPS code, T is the type of file [set], and EXT is the file extension.
Comparing codes to the results you obtained in the AMCDemo application, you can also confirm that the school is located tract 0005 (shown in the map as "5") and in census block 1005.

Code numbers are so assigned as to make it possible to expand the number of groups and classes as that becomes necessary.
Federal agencies that do not require FIPS PUB 104-1 for international data interchange, and that are not involved in national defense programs or with the mission of the U.S. Department of State, may adopt either FIPS PUB 10-4 or FIPS PUB 104-1.

The POW allocation system used in Census 2000 assigns state, county, and place codes to every worker, but does not always assign a tract code.
They should be considered to be working in the state, county, and place indicated in the record, but their particular tract of work could not be determined nor allocated reliably.
It is also important to note that the sub-county codes assigned during regular census processing were sometimes changed by the extended allocation system, in order to place the worker in an appropriate tract.

It should be understood that the USPS recommends placing the Secondary Unit Designator on the end of the same line as the street address information, and that is our recommendation for printing mailing labels, where practical.
In cases where both are the same by coincidence, the mailing address may also be the place address as a data entry convention, but the place address should be retained separately as well.
