State FIPS 2

 

The State FIPS 2 data type is used for 2-digit State FIPS Code data. This will allow data from each State to be credibility weighted with data from nearby States, using Variable Gradient Geospatial Smoothing.

 

After or during an analysis run, a map of the the resulting State FIPS factors can be viewed in the Result Inspection Panel if the computer has Microsoft MapPoint installed.

 

Format notes:

- Leading zeros are allowed but not necessary in State FIPS Code data.
