Practical International Data Management - Building numbers

Building numbers are very important elements within most postal addresses, ensuring of any mail, but also for data processes such as de-duplication and postal validation.

Building numbers may be stored with the rest of the address line (in which case it is important to ensure it is written at the correct end of the address - this differs between countries and regions), or separately to improve the erricacy of data processes. Moving or parsing building numbers after data collection is challenging because addresses can contain many numbers, most not being building numbers:
