USA zip code

In US, can one zip code area be partially in one county and partially in another county? What if the boundary of county changes or counties merge?

Does this refer to a specific SAS program or issue? If so, please provide those details.

 

If this is a general zip code question, this community is not your best bet for an answer as it is all related to the use of SAS software.

This is not a SAS question, but here is a resource:

Basically the boundaries are set independently. So when changes happen someone has to align them. This is a non-trivial task, that in our 'State' we have a single person dedicated to assessing and updating boundaries and verifying overlaps and investigating any issues that may be found.
