Miscellaneous Information for Elk ...

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 Spokane County or the community of Elk:

  • The GNIS Codes ...
    • The current system of identification is called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). The following GNIS codes relate to Elk:
    • GNIS ID for Elk: 1519263
    • GNIS ID for Spokane County: 1529225
    • GNIS ID for State of Washington: 1779804
  • The FIPS Codes ...
  • Misc. Census Codes ...
    • Elk is located in Census Region #4 (the West Region) and Division #9 (the Pacific Division).
  • The US Postal Service ZIP Code ...
    • While some people have used a ZIP code to identify a community, the purpose of the ZIP code was to make mail delivery more efficient by grouping addresses together. Although the ZIP Code doesn't specifically identify a community like Elk, it does identify addresses that are in (or near) Elk. It's important to remember that the boundaries of a ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.
    • The ZIP code for Elk:99009<5>
  • 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 Elk.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Elk) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Elk. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from ElkOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Elk. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.0164, Longitude: -117.2764
