Rule #1 : Use the right map
Make sure the identifiers of your data can match the identifiers of the map.
You can use zip code information with a county map but you can never use county information with a zip code map.
Rule #2 : Use the right view
You don’t display numerical values (the number of women) the way you display rates (the % of women among the population).
For the 1st one, use symbols, and for the 2nd, use shaded areas.
Rule #3 : Don’t overload your map
You don’t need to use the 5-digit ZCTA base map when working for the entire USA. It won’t be legible.
The 3-digit zip code base map is detailed yet clear enough for you to see and understand your data.

Map In XL does not include any geocoding function, which means that you cannot use address file to plot their data on a street view for instance.
Nevertheless, we do have internal geocoding tools, and thus can create a plot map from your files: eg. Location of your plants/customers/prospects by countries/states/counties/zip codes.
