County FIPSCode (countyFIPSCode)

Definitions

The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) numeric code for the county issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Counties are considered to be the `first-order subdivisions` of each State and statistically equivalent entity, regardless of their local designations (county, parish, borough, etc.). Counties in different States will have the same code. A unique county number is created when combined with the 2-digit FIPS State Code.
