Frequently Asked Questions

The address database typically refers to a comprehensive collection of physical addresses, including street names, house numbers, cities, and postal codes, used for various purposes like mail delivery, location-based services, and more.

In many countries, the local government maintains a national address database to facilitate mail delivery, federal government services, and census purposes. The USPS manages the National Address Database (NAD), a state data compilation of validated mailing addresses in the United States.

The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and its partners from all federal government levels, such as the Federal Geographic Data Committee, recognized the need for a National Address Database (NAD). An accurate and up-to-date national address database is critical to transportation safety.

The National Address Database (NAD) is a compilation of data provided by state, local, and tribal governments and is made available “as is.”. It is a work of the federal government and as such, is not subject to copyright protection. As state address programs expand and mature, USDOT expects the coverage to expand as well.

USPS does maintain a National Address Database (NAD) comprising accurate location information for mail delivery efficiency and validation purposes.

Addresses in a database are stored using a structured format, usually separating elements like street name, house number, city, state, and ZIP code into distinct fields for easy retrieval and organization. Various national address databases use different formats, but they commonly employ relational structures or key-value pairs to store address information efficiently.

Some addresses, like businesses and government offices, are publicly accessible.

Personal information linked to residential addresses (name, phone number, ID number) is classified as private.

Each country has its own set of regulations on data protection.

When handling address information, it’s recommended to use authorized databases like GeoPostcodes.
