  • I’ve heard that 87 percent of the population can be accurately identified with just 3 pieces of information: zip code, birthday and gender, so can’t someone get into the CO APCD and get enough information to steal my identity?

The CO APCD does not provide that kind of information in published reports or datasets. Reports distill zip codes down to 3 digits, and strip them out entirely if fewer than 20,000 people live there. Date of birth will be changed to age or age range.
