No, TIGER lists all of the addresses, but adds a large fudge factor to 
comply with privacy laws.   TIGER data alone is not enough to allow 
reconstruction of the house numbers manually from satellite data, 
assuming that all buildings would be visible through the tree cover.  In 
fact on my block, the TIGER numbers are backwards from the actual order.
