The ZIP Code Changes Report is available for Penn readers only in DBF format. This format can be read by FoxPro or other xBase database management applications; it can also be read by Microsoft Excel, SPSS, and other statistical processing applications. The file consists of 5,131 changes. The file structure consists of 8 variables:
