This is the basic operation for finding demographic information. Given a U.S. street address, the operation uses DOTS AddressValidation and DOTS GeoCoder US to identify the Census Bureau-assigned block identification number. The address range must exist in the Census Bureau's TIGER/Line database to find any block or neighborhood data. Otherwise ZIP level data will be returned.
