<2>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Asotin. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<3>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Asotin.

So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a city (such as Asotin).
