Why does a zip code not appear/look incorrect on a map?

Zip codes change over time, meaning zip codes may be created/removed or boundaries changed by the US Postal Service. The maps available on our indicator pages are a snapshot of 2010 zip codes, so newly created or changed zip codes may not appear or look different than expected on indicator maps.
