What You Need to Know About this Site
Welcome to ZIPSkinny.com! We are glad you found us, and I hope that you find the site to be interesting and helpful.
Because we have seen a dramatic rise in visitors these past few weeks, I wanted to put the information presented here in the appropriate perspective.
This site was created as a Web development "hobby" project using Census 2000 data obtained from the Census website.
While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information, errors and omissions can occur, and visitors are encouraged to use the actual Census site instead of this one for any serious research.
Additionally, we wish to point out that there are certain important limitations to the data presented here. Because many of the measurements are based on sample data, certain results may be skewed in some cases, especially when the ZIP code area in question represents a very small sample. Please bear in mind that ZIP codes are not uniform population units. They were invented for mail delivery, not population comparisons.
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.
