In researching estimates of expenditures of GIS data in the US, I ran
across a report  that some of you may find interesting. There's
several bits of insight in there regarding addresses. For example,
there's tables listing expendatures on address data by different federal
(and a few state) agencies. The Census Bureau spent $1.4B on addresses
to support the 2010 census! There's also some insights on the directions
things may be going as far as opening up access to Census address info.
And the USPS weighs in on their thoughts. Interesting reading if you are
into that kind of stuff.
