Enrollment by Zip Code
ZIP3 Data: The Zip3 Excel file allows users to view the total enrolled households by the first three digits of a ZIP code (ZIP3). To protect subscriber privacy and to reduce the risk of identification of enrolled households, USAC has redacted any ZIP3s with a population under 20,000, according to the latest Census information. These redacted ZIP3s are identified as “000.”
Full Zip Code Data: A second Zip5 Excel file allows users to view the total enrolled households by the full five-digit ZIP code as of the first of the month, starting with August 1. USAC has redacted any ZIP codes meeting the criteria developed by the FCC to protect subscriber privacy and to reduce the risk of identification of enrolled households. ZIP codes are excluded if their estimated population is below 50, if a population estimate for the ZIP code is not available in the American Community Survey, if there are fewer than 1,000 enrolled households in a ZIP code and those households comprise most of a ZIP code’s estimated population, or if the number of EBB enrolled households in a ZIP code equals or exceeds the population estimate range for that ZIP code.
Enrollment by County
County Data: The County Excel file allows users to view the total enrolled households by county as of December 30, 2021. County name, state, state FIPS, and county FIPS are included.
Note: Federal Information Processing System (FIPS) codes are numbers that uniquely identify geographic areas. The number of digits in FIPS codes vary depending on the level of geography. State-level FIPS codes have two digits; county-level FIPS codes have five digits–of which the first two are the FIPS code of the state to which the county belongs.
