    "Do individual apartments and units get their own pbKEY?" is a question I get from time to time.

    The answer is that it depends.  US Geocoding's, Master Location Data (MLD) is a compiled list of all known addresses in the US.  If we know a particular unit number for an address when we are building the data, then it will get its own pbKEY.

    If we don't know the specific unit numbers for a multi-unit building, you will get the pbKEY for the address of the main building.  This is referred to as the "parent" pbKEY.
