This county level dashboard does not include COVID-19 hospitalization data. Contact tracing and case investigation for all cases ended on 3/31/22 as DHEC transitioned its response efforts to focus on outbreaks in high-risk congregate settings, not individual cases. Therefore, hospitalization data presented on this dashboard after 4/1/22 will not be comparable to data collected previously.

The Building Codes Council has approved the use of the following county maps for the 2021 code cycle based on the 2015 International Residential Code. These maps are intended to be the primary source for defining the appropriate boundaries for wind and seismic design in South Carolina for single- and two-family dwellings. The local building official, at his or her discretion, may also consult the ATC website for further clarification on the location of wind and seismic zones. The ATC website is not meant to supersede the maps approved by the Council, but is intended to provide further clarification as needed to determine the boundary on an approved map, or to determine the wind and seismic zones if a map has not been approved for that particular county.
If you move to South Carolina from another state, whether renting or owning your residence,South Carolina law (Code § 56-3-210) requires that you register your vehicle in South Carolinawithin forty-five (45) days.

The U.S. state of South Carolina is made up of 46 counties, the maximum allowable by state law. They range in size from 359 square miles (930 square kilometers) in the case of Calhoun County to 1,358 square miles (3,517 square kilometers) in the case of Charleston County. The least populous county is Allendale County, with only 7,858 residents, while the most populous county is Greenville County, with a population of 533,834, despite the state's most populous city, Charleston, being located in Charleston County.
Historically, county government in South Carolina has been fairly weak. The 1895 Constitution made no provision for local government, effectively reducing counties to creatures of the state. Each county's delegation to the General Assembly, comprising one senator and at least one representative, also doubled as its county council. Under this system, the state senator from each county wielded the most power. From the eighteenth century to 1973, counties in South Carolina performed limited functions such as the provision of law enforcement and the construction of transportation infrastructure.
One of the many challenges that social science researchers and practitioners face is the difficulty of relating United States Postal Service (USPS) ZIP codes to Census Bureau geographies. There are valuable data available only at the ZIP code level that, when combined with demographic data tabulated at various Census geography levels, could open up new avenues of exploration.
While some acceptable methods of combining ZIP codes and Census geography exist, they have limitations. To provide additional avenues for merging these data, PD&R has released the HUD-USPS Crosswalk Files. These unique files are derived from data in the quarterly USPS Vacancy Data. They originate directly from the USPS; are updated quarterly, making them highly responsive to changes in ZIP code configurations; and reflect the locations of both business and residential addresses. The latter feature is of particular interest to housing researchers because many of the phenomena that they study are based on housing unit or address. By using an allocation method based on residential addresses rather than by area or by population, analysts can take into account not only the spatial distribution of population, but also the spatial distribution of residences. This enables a slightly more nuanced approach to allocating data between disparate geographies. Please note that the USPS Vacancy Data is constructed from ZIP+4 data that contains records of addresses, it does not contain ZIP+4 data that are associated with ZIP codes that exclusively serve Postal Office Boxes (PO Boxes). As a result, ZIP codes that only serve PO Boxes will not appear in the files.
This article demonstrates how to use a GIS to process ZIP Code Crosswalk Files. In this article, calls for service from New York City's Open Data Portal are estimated at the county-level and census tract-level. This article also includes an accuracy analysis.
There are six types of crosswalk files available for download. The first 3 crosswalk files are used to allocate ZIP codes to Census tracts, counties or Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSA). The last three are used to allocate Census tracts, counties or Core Based Statistical Areas to ZIP codes. It is important to note that the relationship between the two types of crosswalk files is not a perfectly inverse one. That is to say, you cannot use the ZIP to Tract crosswalk to allocate Census tract data to the ZIP code level. For that you would have to use the Tract to ZIP crosswalk file.
When a ZIP is split by any of the other geographies, that ZIP code is duplicated in the crosswalk file. In the example below, ZIP code 03870 is split by two different Census tracts, 33015066000 and 33015071000, which appear in the tract column. The ratio of residential addresses in the first ZIP-Tract record to the total number of residential addresses in the ZIP code is .0042 (.42%). The remaining residential addresses in that ZIP (99.58%) fall into the second ZIP-Tract record. So, for example, if one wanted to allocate data from ZIP code 03870 to each Census tract located in that ZIP code, one would multiply the number of observations in the ZIP code by the residential ratio for each tract associated with that ZIP code. Note that the sum of each ratio column for each distinct ZIP code may not always equal 1.00 (or 100%) due to rounding issues.
When a Census tract, county or CBSA is split by a ZIP code, that tract, county or CBSA code is duplicated in the crosswalk file. In the example below tract 01001020200 is split by two different ZIP codes, 36008 and 36067, which appear in the ZIP column. The ratio of residential addresses in the first tract-ZIP record to the total number of residential addresses in the tract is .0272 (2.72%). The remaining residential addresses in that tract (97.28%) fall into the second tract-ZIP record. So, for example, if one wanted to allocate data from Census tract 01001020200 to the ZIP code level, one would multiply the number of observations in the Census tract by the residential ratio for each ZIP code associated with that Census tract. Note that the sum of each ratio column for each distinct ZIP code may not always equal 1.00 (or 100%) due to rounding issues.
HUD is unable to geocode a small number of records that we receive from the USPS. As a result, there may be some 5-digit USPS ZIP codes that will not be included in these crosswalk files. Less than 1% of the total number of active 5-digit ZIP codes in the country are excluded from the current version of the crosswalk files. Since the HUD geocoding base map is updated regularly, an effort is made to re-geocode these records with every new quarter of data. As a result, these crosswalk files will be generated on a quarterly basis and may differ slightly from quarter to quarter.
ZIP Codes have the potential to intersect with multiple geographies. Each record in the Crosswalk File represents a geography that intersects with a particular ZIP Code. For example, if you are reviewing a ZIP to County file, if a ZIP Code appears twice then it intersects with two counties. The ratio fields describe the percentage of the respective addresses that fall in both that ZIP Code and each county.
Below is a list of the GS locality pay areas applicable in January 2020 and the locations composing them. Most of the locations listed are counties. The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) geographic codes consist of a two-digit State and three-digit county identifier. These geographic codes are derived from the Worldwide Geographic Location Codes, 1993. The only exceptions to the use of State/county codes in the locations listed below are - 2b1af7f3a8
