Well, this is news, indeed.  Our government hasn’t spent enough money building two of these databases  (USPS and Census), so we’ll go make a third one. Logic and fiscal concerns would suggest that permitting use of the address data of the Census would make the most sense.  After all, they check it no less than every ten years, and I suspect they work to keep adding new addresses in the interval.  How the USPS and Census data would compare in accuracy is a question we’ll leave aside.

Our thanks to Larry Chaido of Transglobal Consultants for bringing this to our attention.
