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

GNIS ID for Boone County: 1550009

GNIS ID for West Virginia: 1779805

State & County Code: 54/005 (West Virginia / Boone County)

Misc. Census Codes ...

Bloomingrose is located in Census Region #3 (the South Region) and Division #5 (the South Atlantic 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 Bloomingrose, it does identify addresses that are in (or near) Bloomingrose. 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 Bloomingrose: 25024<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.

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.
