Problems
"5 Digit Zip Code to County" District Data
Imprecise
. 5 digit zip codes cross county lines, sometimes straddling deep into two or more counties.
. PO Boxes may serve more than one county.
"9 Digit Zip Code to County" District Data
Incomplete
. Leaves out large regions in which mail is not delivered to residences. Holes in data make whole sections of counties disappear from the applications in which they are used.
"Census Block, Block Group and/or Tract to County" District Data
Census Block, Block Group, and Tracts are all designed by the U.S. Census TIGER/Line team to not cross county lines. These entities are the basic building blocks of the TIGER/Line files and are used for all statistical analyses done by the Census Bureau. Census blocks and the block groups and tracts built from them are created and re-aligned with the decennial census.

Out-of-Date.
Census block files do not stay current with newly created addresses. The 2011 U.S. Census blocks will be the most accurate yet produced by the US Government. However, on the day it is published, it will already be a year or more behind the additions to addresses and changes in U.S. Postal zip code assignments. As good as they are for demographic analysis and Census reports of demographic trends, they contain no zip+4 or carrier route information and cannot be used reliably for directing mail campaigns or targeting mailings to the census block or tract level.
