<1>If you're interested in how the shape of California's counties, including Contra Costa, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Concord.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Concord - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a city (such as Concord). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Concord or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Concord. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Concord
