The North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is a telephone numbering plan whereby a specific geographic area is assigned a prefix. In the case of area code 561, this is for Palm Beach County in the state of Florida, United States. It includes all major cities in the county, such as Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Wellington, Boyton Beach, Jupiter, Delray Beach and Belle Glade.

The 561 area code was created on May 13, 1996, due to the depletion of the previous 407 area code. In 2002, due to the proliferation of cellular telephones and population growth in the county, the 561 area code was nearly exhausted. For this reason, the northern part of the county, Treasure Coast, acquired a new area code, 772, separating it from the Palm Beach area and 561.

In recent years, large national companies have announced plans to relocate to Florida, such as The Walt Disney Co., which has confirmed plans to move its headquarters in Burbank, California, to Florida within the next 18 months. This is due to the state’s low tax policy, which aims to attract large companies to generate employment and wealth in the area.

Palm Beach is the third most populous county in Florida and the largest geographically, covering more than 2,300 square miles and a population of more than 3,000,000 people. Its industry is one of the strongest in the state, with approximately 50,000 businesses in the county, mostly in communications and information technology, aerospace and engineering, agriculture and food processing, business and financial services, and medical and pharmaceutical products.
