Table 1 Area characteristics for geocoded addresses

From: Comparing a single-stage geocoding method to a multi-stage geocoding method: how much and where do they disagree?

Geocoded by: Both methods Multi-stage method only Single-stage method only
  N = 7686 N = 372 N = 40
Parcel data available, % 63% 48% 55%
Local street data available, % 59% 66% 35%
