Hi @Pars E what are the actual Criteria Ids you believe are the same place?  I see several Franklins in New Jersey but I think they're all different places...

 

This may be clearer on the geographical search rather than the City/DMA search:

thanks Jon, you're correct
I checked the other dataset...
9051987 Franklin,Gloucester County,New Jersey,United States 21164 US City Active
1022130 Franklin,Sussex County,New Jersey,United States 21164 US City Active

same city name, 2 different counties
i thought CriteriaID starting with 9 was possibly a deprecated record
thanks again
