This target allows you to filter against the locality information that is visible in the JSON output embedded within the element.

The target can be difficult to filter against unless you know exactly what is in there. The attribute is a lower-level target. Since it is more specific, it is more valuable in filters.

In the US, this target typically contains the name of a city.

Note: we have observed that the* family of targets is only sparsely populated with data.
