Various Identification Codes ...

GNIS Codes ...

The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) was created to address the problems caused by spelling and naming variations. The BGN will usually recognize an existing name or, when necessary, establish a name for a geographic feature (such as a mountain, lake, river, stream, city, town, village, dam, bridge, etc).

The BGN names are kept in a database called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) and it is the official Federal repository. The GNIS is operated and maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

A unique and permanent code has been assigned for each name in the GNIS database. These names and identifiers are definitive and it is intended that they are to be used by all departments of the Federal Government:

GNIS ID for Tuckers Settlement: 736951

GNIS ID for Perry County: 758533

GNIS ID for Missouri: 1779791

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies created a set of codes with a purpose similar to the GNIS codes. These codes are called the Federal Information Processing Standard (or the FIPS 55 codes). Although they are still used by some organizations, the FIPS codes are obsolete and will ultimately be replaced by the GNIS codes.

While FIPS codes have been assigned to all counties and states, a specific code has not been assigned to Tuckers Settlement. The following FIPS codes apply to the State and County:

State Code:  29 (Missouri)
County Code:  157 (Perry County)

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Tuckers Settlement is located in Region #2 (the Midwest Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Tuckers Settlement is located in Division #4 (the West North-Central Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Tuckers Settlement is located in Region VII (Region 7).
