Advanced data available geographies

Esri provides data for the U.S. and Puerto Rico through a combination of administrative and postal geographies. Administrative boundaries from the U.S. Census Bureau change every 10 years with each decennial census. Other administrative geographies and postal geographies change more frequently. To learn about U.S. geographies, view the Understanding Esri Geography lesson. Use the following table to understand the geographies associated with each dataset.
