Zip to Fips SQL Cheat

Though there is option to have domo build a custom fips dataset for your instance and it may seem easy to do a seperate table for joining - it has arisen that sometimes joining does not provide all table rows to be assigned appropirate fips. Sometimes, conversely you are looking for specific counties or to bucket (numeric) fips in a particular way.  If either of those are applicable to your use case, hopefully the following sample will help. 

 

In case you need a quick zip to fips code, here is sample for use in SQL using Manhattan zips only.

Use excel's downfill function to quickly create your cases (and remove spaces) before pasting into sql. 

 

If your zip code is not formatted in 5 digits you may need to run step before this case:

 

SELECT  *,

LEFT(zipcod, 5) as zipcode

FROM source_table

 

 

 

Comments

  • Great tips, thanks Lauren

  • you could do

    select  *,  case when `zipcode` in (......) then '36061' end as fips from transform_data_1 

     

    Reduces the number of lines.
