The TIGER import brings in US Census Designated Places as a Level 8 Administrative boundary. As far as I understand CDPs are statistical boundaries and should be deleted. Is that true?

The unincorporated areas I'm working have 80,000 to 100,00 people essentially without a defining border. In reality people refer to where they live by their postal code.

Should I use postal code an administrative boundary?

I have no clue especially about USA boundary and postalcode system, but maybe you can ask again th the US sub forum at (log in there with your OSM credentials) or consult the tals-US mailinglist ... see
