* These FIPS codes uniquely identify each county by State and are part of the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology [NIST], U.S. Department of Commerce. Of the 5 digit codes, the first 2 digits are the State code and the last three digits are the county code. For States in the 1 to 9 code range, the FIPS code is only 4 digits long as the leading zero of the 2-digit State code is not shown. For more information on FIPS code standards see the [NIST FIPS] publication page and look for FIPSPUB5-2 and FIPSPUB6-4.
