Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Louisiana's parishes, including Tangipahoa, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Tangipahoa.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Tangipahoa - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

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

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