Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Florida's counties, including Broward, 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 Sunrise.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Sunrise - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (754) is an overlay for area code (954).
<5>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. 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 Sunrise). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Sunrise or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Sunrise) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Sunrise. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from SunriseOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sunrise.
