Please understand that the U.S. Post Office (USPS) may use alternate spellings of certain streets that differ from that which is in our census database. In this case, the company that produces the census is obliged to use the USPS spelling in addressing these forms. We are aware of these discrepancies and therefore, it is not necessary to correct the spelling of your street address.
