Various Identification Codes ...

FIPS Codes ...

In a past effort, various federal agencies worked together to create 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.

The following FIPS codes apply to Newport:

Place (Community) Code:  51565
State Code:  28 (Mississippi)
County Code:  033 (DeSoto County)

Since the Place and County FIPS codes are not unique and can be repeated in other States, it's necessary to combine the State code with the Place and County FIPS codes to uniquely identify them - for example:

State/Place Code:  28/51565
State/County Code:  28/033

Regional Codes ...

For statistical purposes, the US Census Bureau has divided the country into four Regions. Newport is located in Region #3 (the South Region).

In turn, the US Census Bureau has further divided each Region into Divisions. Newport is located in Division #6 (the East South-Central Division).

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has created ten Federal Regions. Newport is located in Region IV (Region 4).

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has created ten Management Regions. Newport is located in Region IV (Region 4).
