The French INSEE code (or city code) is administratively called official geographic code (in France) and is defined by the INSEE institute. It applies to French towns, townships, boroughs, counties, regions, and overseas territories.
The INSEE code consists of 5 digits, the first 2 are the number of the French department the town belongs to and the other 3 are a code given to the town.
dCode retrieves a code from the name of a city, but also to find a city from its code.
Example: 02468 gives the French city Marle
Example: Caen gives the INSEE code 14118
The current nomenclature does not allow for more than 10,000 towns by department.
Cities sometimes change names or disappear or regroup. dCode manages the codes of all cities, even with old town names.
Municipalities in other countries (such as Algeria which was French) are not registered.
The commune of birth code is the INSEE geographic code. It is used in particular by the administration or social security.
The common code normally refers to the INSEE code, but it can erroneously refer to the postal code.
