Footnotes ...

<1>While Spirit Lake is in the Pacific Time Zone, the area to the east is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT).

- Return to Citation

<2>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 Spirit Lake). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Spirit Lake or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

- Return to Citation

<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Spirit Lake - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

- Return to Citation

<4>Every year, the US Census Bureau creates a population estimate for the preceeding year. Keep in mind that this value is an estimate and not an actual count. The most recent Census estimate is for the year 2017.

- Return to Citation

<5>The area value has been supplied by the US Census Bureau and it can be different than the geographic boundaries of Spirit Lake. The value given by the Census Bureau reflects their statistical (or sampling) requirements. For example, if there is a cluster of people living just outside of the community's official boundary, the Census-defined area might be expanded to include that group.

- Return to Citation

<6>A Housing Unit is a broad term for those places where people live (whether occupied or temporarily vacant), such as a house, an apartment, a mobile home, or an area that is considered as a separate living quarter. Separate living quarters (consisting of one or more rooms) are considered to be those places where people live, sleep and eat separately from others and that have access to the outside (either directly or by a shared hallway).

- Return to Citation

<7>The longitude & latitude values may not be the geographic center of Spirit Lake, rather it may be a prominent intersection or the center of population, etc. It will vary depending on the source.
