Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Mississippi's counties, including Yazoo, 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 Yazoo City.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Yazoo City - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

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

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Yazoo City. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Yazoo City
