2017 End-of-Year Database Roundup

We’ve highlighted some changes you’ll see to our business and consumer databases through December and into the new year. Here’s what’s happening:

  • Postal County Code Change: The field defined as a ‘postal county code’ was found to contain the census county code instead. We’re correcting this so you will see when county boundaries differ between two sources, have changed, or have been renamed since 2010.
  • Daylight Savings Indicator: An indicator will be added for areas impacted by Daylight Savings Time.
  • Growing/Shrinking Flag: We’re expanding the coverage of the flag that indicates a significant change in business size. These counts are expected to increase.
