County Codes in the map?[edit]

How were the county codes in the map generated (like "WK" for Wahkiakum)? Is there a standard or an algorithm? Who did it? (I only looked cursorily in the history, but didn't see anything).

One does have to wonder (even at this late date) if the two-letter codes have any official status. They are presented in the lead-off map as if they were official designations, but the table bears no mention of them. --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 17:02, 12 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

They are not official as far as I can tell! Denelson83, how did you come up with these in Template:Washington County Labelled Map? CR for Clark seems the most unusual to me. I have replaced them with the full names. Reywas92Talk 19:07, 12 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]


Wondering how to edit this U.S. County Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. Counties standards might help.

No, no, no, no, no! These counties HAVE to be in alphabetical order! How is anyone supposed to find them? RickK | Talk 05:06, 18 Mar 2004 (UTC)

County codes and that's it?[edit]

It seems to me that a list of counties would be both more interesting and more useful if it had something more than the FIPS codes to offer about the counties. Such as... County seats; population at last census; area; highest point; largest city (if not same as county seat); date (or at least year) of creation/organization... --Haruo 05:21, 18 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]
