Smalltown Downtowners, which is what 64116 is, supposedly, are most likely to...

Shop at Target

However, another classification said we read "Jet," and unless a lot of white folk read "Jet" in my area, I doubt that's right.

2002-03-18 12:33:11 AM  
I'm sure this is all a result of highly accurate surveys. I hope it's not like online information gatering necause i inevitably go for the ID of a 99 year old woman making more than 150K a year who owns a bentley but wants to buy an AMC and has small children at home. And lives in a mobile home.

also, another favorite: How did you hear about this website? If other, please state: "A dog told me."

...skew this database...
