Area code 202 is the designated area code for Washington, DC. It is one of the oldest area codes in the United States.
It was originally deployed in 1947 as part of the North American Numbering Plan. 202 is the only area code covering the city of Washington, D.C.
The North American Numbering Plan was created was to standardize telephone dialling formats in the United States and Canada. It divided the territory and assigned each region a three-digit prefix.
Each individual telephone number in the United States and Canada is assigned a seven-digit telephone number. These consist of a three-digit central office code and a four-digit station number. These seven-digit strings are unique only within their respective area codes.
The area code, central office code and station code together form a complete 10 digit telephone number.
Seven-digit (local format) allows a caller to dial a local number without including its area code. In most of the US and Canada, 10-digit dialling is mandatory. For international calling, the North American Numbering Plan uses the international code +1.
