Planned Deprecation

Melissa plans to deprecate ZIP*Data Classic by October 22, 2022 and will require all applications that currently use ZIP*Data Classic to implement the standard version: ZIP*Data II.

ZIP*Data Classic will be deprecated because it is divided amongst 10 tables that must be joined together and contains 2000 Census data for Historical purposes. ZIP*Data II is divided amongst two (2) tables and uses American Community Survey (ACS) 2019 data, which is updated once a year, whereas Census data is updated every 10 years.

Please see the Product Advisory to learn more about the differences between ZIP*Data Classic and ZIP*Data II.
