This table is ideal as a resource for standardising and processing your data tables to improve quality, de-duplication rates and postal validation rates.This table has been built through intense analysis of both real-World data sets and data sets which cover addresses for a whole country, or large parts thereof, such as postal tables. The table is being continually updated and improved. Full details of the table contents and the layout is provided in this documentation. Furthermore, basic counts for this version are provided in this spreadsheet. The data is provided in Windows code page 1252, complying to ISO8859-1, MS-DOS code page 850. Diacritical marks (accents) for most Western European languages are reproduced in the table. Thus, for Eastern European and non-European languages diacritical marks have been replaced with equivalent characters. Though our database systems can store Unicode data, we cannot enter it in normal use. We therefore provide fields with the same address strings with numeric Unicode place holders so that you can translate the data to Unicode should you wish to do so.CoverageThe table has data for most of the World's countries, but the information is fuller for some countries than for others.
