PSTATE_GEO indicates the two-character state postal code (e.g., "CA" for California) for the patient's residence. It is assigned by mapping the patient's ZIP Code to a state. If the patient's ZIP Code is invalid, then PSTATE_GEO is set to invalid. If the patient's ZIP Code is missing, then PSTATE_GEO is set to blank.
