Different ways to use a zip code database
How about Dating and Valentine's Day? One company decided to sift through household, gender, city and neighborhood data in America. The goal to find the best place for singles that match you. The company used data sets for many thousands of ZIP codes, then sliced, diced and manipulated the zip code database using data analysis and statistical software. They determined that labor markets are typically the determining factor. Men outnumber women in regions that have a higher proportion of technology, manufacturing and construction jobs. Women outnumber men most in places with more professional services jobs and in bigger cities.
Local industries may play a large role in gender populations for cities. Neighborhoods are a more genuine reflection of where people want to live. So for each of the 10 largest metropolitan areas, he calculated the ZIP codes with the highest ratio of men to women, and women to men.
