Hi, IP addresses are stored but not available.

They're used to process sessions by looking up IP ranges and cross-referencing them with GPS info provided by ISPs.

That GPS data is used to determine user location.


To answer your question, ZIP/area codes are not available and the User ID won't help.

The only way to do this is to get users to enter said zip-code and area code in a form (but private info such as email, postal address and full phone number cannot be stored or reported on in GA.
