If you are an information junkie like the librarians at the Miller Center you will love ESRI ZIP Lookup. We know that where you live says a lot about you. With ESRI’s tool you can see what it is saying. Type in a zip code and reveal its demographic characteristics based on “Tapestry” segments which include 67 distinct markets detailing the diversity of the population. For instance, a search of Centereach, NY shows that 67% of the population is “Pleasantville.” Generally, these people are married couples who are “happy staying put in [their] older, high-value, single family homes. Older homes mean more maintenance, so contracting for home improvement and remodeling projects is a priority.” (Click image below to see an example.) Population density, age and income information is also included for each zip code.
Whether your looking to visit, relocate or expand your business to a new zip code, ESRI Zip Lookup can be a valuable tool to paint a picture of locations throughout the U.S.
