County FIPS 5
The County FIPS 5 data type is used for 5-digit County FIPS Code data. This will allow data from each County to be credibility weighted with data from nearby Counties, using Variable Gradient Geospatial Smoothing.
After or during an analysis run, a map of the the resulting County FIPS factors can be viewed in the Result Inspection Panel if the computer has Microsoft MapPoint installed.
- Leading zeros are allowed but not necessary in County FIPS Code data.
