Welcome to the CDX Technologies May 2017 Newsletter


We've just introduced a new web-based address correction and ZIP+4 Code lookup tool on  Please consider taking advantage of this free resource.


Our CDXTract database has been updated with the latest census tract data from the U.S. Census.


We also cover a new address correction template using CDXGeoData in our latest blog post:


New Web-based Address Correction Tool for ZIP+4 Lookup


We've just added an Address Correction and ZIP+4 Lookup Tool on our website that can verify single or multi-line address data.  The output report contains a corrected and standardized USPS address and matching ZIP+4 data.  Additional information is included such as the county name, county FIPS code, congressional district, time zone, and more.


The tool is free to use and demonstrates the output our CDXGeoData and CDXStreamer tools generate for bulk address correction.


Data can be entered as a single line such as "2 West Hanover Ave Ste 202, Randolph, NJ 07869" or as separate multi-line data fields.  Secondary information (such as suite or apartment number) should be added to the street address without any comma.  Once your input data is entered press the "Generate Report" button on the web page to start the report creation.  The application will work in any browser and does not require Microsoft Excel.


Here is an example of the output:



Click on the printer icon next to the report button to save a copy of the report.


The Address Verification and ZIP+4 Lookup app can be found under the "Tools" menu at the top of the website, or by clicking here.


Get the Latest ACS Data by Census Tract


We have just updated the CDXZipStream Census Tract data feed from the American Community Survey, for the years 2011-2015.  The feed includes all census tracts in both the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and covers a wide array of demographic data such as:  age, individual earnings, educational attainment, household size, household income, housing value and rent, marital status, population, race, and school enrollment.  Most of these where relevant are also provided by gender.


Since census tracts are on average about half the size of ZIP Codes, they offer a more precise demographic snapshot.  A complete listing and description of each demographic variable is provided in the downloadable document CDXZipStream Data Feeds and Definitions.


Here's a quick tutorial on how to use CDXZipStream to retrieve census tract data:

To access the data, census tract codes (also referred to as FIPS codes) must be provided as input to an Excel worksheet.  CDX Technologies also offers a free Excel template that can identify census tract codes for an address list - please see the article Get Census Tract FIPS Codes in an Excel Template for more details.


The census tract database is compatible with all demographic versions of CDXZipStream.  It is a separate purchase and is currently priced at $199.95.
