If you use that as your zipcode in OTR, you don't get any mail. And, I think I'm right in the middle of OTR and my zipcode is 45202. What is 45214 anyway? Is that South Fairmont or something? And, the West End is not OTR. It may use the 45202 zipcode, but so does Mt. Adams. I can't imagine how one could collect reliable date from reports using a zipcode that doesn't exist. To me, that says the data is bogus.

Look for yourself at the list of zip codes and you will see both zips on there.

stats are stats!!!! You can make up your own, but I will be relying on ones that accurate.

Oh, yea. I'll rely on Sperlings (whatever that is) for whether there is a 45210 zipcode. Hahahaha!

Here, try an actual source and see for yourself:

USPS - ZIP Code Lookup - Search By Address

1.) Do you know that OTR is 45202? lol
2.) Seriously ... Sperling's? That's like me wanting to try good pizza while in NY and going to Pizza Hut.

If you want stats, just look for yourself. It tends to be better when comparing similar sized cities. Also, don't forget MSA's ... they're usually more important than city boundaries. For per capita, remember ... it's: pop/100,000=___ x sample.

For an non-exisent zip, it shows up on City-Data also. If this is a non-exisent zip, they need to remove it because it would be misleading.

Have a great day Wilson

Curious, does every one of your posts have to be sarcastic?

You also have a great day

I take it you still have not taken the time to click the mouse twice and enter the zipcode in the USPS search box to find out that the zipcode does not exist, but you persist in your argument. Curious.

My point was and is, that since this zipcode hasn't existed for as long as a decade but at least 5 years, how could data collection using this zipcode be reliable. I assert that it cannot be.

I still come to the conclusion that the statistics are somewhat legitimate given the source, in the sense that OTR is a fairly dangerous neighborhood (although i find it hard to believe it is more dangerous than any other crime ridden place across America).
