ZipSkinny

You know, it is really amazing the things that are available on the internet…

Take ZIPskinny for example.

You input your zip code (or any zip code you want) and voila! You have more information on the area than you can shake a stick at.

For example:

  • Chadbourn, NC (28431) has 1.6% of the working population over 16 is employed in the Farm/Fishing/Forestry category.
  • Cerro Gordo, NC (28430) has an 8.8% divorce rate.
  • Saint Charles, MO (63304) has 12,988 housing units and 25% of the people living in them have a bachelor’s degree.

Granted, such information may not be useful to some, but it is fascinating. You can even build a widget to display the info of your desire zip code on your web page or blog. You can create a Google Map for the center of the zip code area, check the schools that are available or compare info between zip codes.

Tip o’ the hat to Jeff for the lead.
