Included are standard codes for named populated cities, towns, villages, whether incorporated or unincorporated, important military and naval installations, townships, Indian reservations, named places that form parts of other places, places important for transportation, industrial, or commercial purposes, i.e., unpopulated railroad points, airports, and shopping centers. The standard code is seven characters in length, the first two of which identify the State. The last five numeric characters identify the place within the State and provide an alphabetic ordering of the place names. In addition to the place name and its code, the list also provides the name and code for the county (or counties) in which the place is located, the ZIP Code of the servicing post office (or offices) cross-references to former or alternate names, an inclusion code, a class designator code, and a cross-reference to the Worldwide Geographic Location Code issued by the General Services Administration.
