Q:  

I need data for all zip codes in the nation. What is the easiest way to obtain characteristics on zip codes?

A:  

American FactFinder has zip code characteristics. The first step is to choose 5-Digit ZCTA from the Advance/Show Me All/Geographies tab on left side of the American FactFinder window. You will then be prompted to choose a state. Instead of choosing one state choose the sentence that reads:

All 5-Digit zip codes tabulation areas within the United States.

Once you have selected that, all tables that contain ZIP code information will populate the FactFinder window. You will be able to use the search function to find the tables you are interested in.
