Census Data for Kennicott ...

So far, we have found very little information about Kennicott. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Kennicott to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Kennicott, please Contact Us.


As far as we can tell, Kennicott has not been included in past Census counts, so there is no population information for this community.

Miscellaneous Information for Kennicott ...

The Federal government has assigned various identifying codes to each community, county and state. At one time or another, the US Census Bureau has used one (or more) of the following identifiers when referring to either or the community of Kennicott:

Misc. Census Codes ...

Kennicott would have been located in Census Region #4 (the West Region) and Division #9 (the Pacific Division).

The US Postal Service ZIP Code ...

While some people have used a ZIP code to identify a community, the purpose of the ZIP code was to make mail delivery more efficient by grouping addresses together. Although the ZIP Code doesn't specifically identify a community like Kennicott, it does identify addresses that are in (or near) Kennicott. It's important to remember that the boundaries of a ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.

The ZIP code for Kennicott: 99588<2>

Census ZCTA Codes ...

The US Census Bureau created statistical entities that they call ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs) and these ZCTAs are frequently confused with the ZIP codes that come from the US Postal Service (USPS).

ZCTAs were first created for the 2000 Census and at that time, they were based upon the USPS ZIP codes. While largely covering the same areas, the boundaries of a ZCTA do not necessarily match the boundaries of a postal ZIP code with the same number. For example, while a postal ZIP code can cross a county or state line, a Census ZCTA can not. They should be treated as separate entities with no correlation between them.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Kennicott, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Kennicott or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
