Miscellaneous Information for Spring ...

The Federal government has assigned various identifying codes to each community, county and state. At one time or another, the US Census Bureau has used one (or more) of the following identifiers when referring to either Harris County or the community of Spring:

The GNIS Codes ...

The current system of identification is called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). The following GNIS codes relate to Spring:

GNIS ID for Spring: 1347681

GNIS ID for Harris County: 1383886

GNIS ID for Texas: 1779801

The FIPS Codes ...

An earlier (and largely obsolete) identification method was called the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS):

State Code: 48 (Texas)

County Code: 201 (Harris County)

Place Code: 69596 (Spring)

State & County Code: 48/201 (Texas / Harris County)

State & Place Code: 48/69596 (Texas / Spring)

Misc. Census Codes ...

Spring is located in Census Region #3 (the South Region) and Division #7 (the West South-Central Division).

US Postal Service ZIP Codes ...

While some people have used ZIP codes to identify a community, the ZIP codes were actually created to make mail delivery more efficient by grouping addresses together. Although a ZIP Code doesn't specifically identify a community like Spring, they do identify addresses that are in (or near) the community. It's important to remember that the boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.

Our list of ZIP codes for Spring :

77373, 77379, 77380, 77381, 77382, 77386, 77387, 77388 & 77389.<4>

Census ZCTA Codes ...

The US Census Bureau created statistical entities that they call ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs) and these ZCTAs are frequently confused with the ZIP codes that come from the US Postal Service (USPS).

ZCTAs were first created for the 2000 Census and at that time, they were based upon the USPS ZIP codes. While largely covering the same areas, the boundaries of a ZCTA do not necessarily match the boundaries of a postal ZIP code with the same number. For example, while a postal ZIP code can cross a county or state line, a Census ZCTA can not. They should be treated as separate entities with no correlation between them.

For more information about the various Federal identification codes, please visit our Misc Page for Spring.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Spring) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Spring. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 30.0799, Longitude: -95.4172     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Spring have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
