Exploring SimplyMap Data: P$YCLE

In this week’s SimplyMap report we’ll take a look at one of our newer data packages offered, P$YCLE® by Nielsen.

P$YCLE® is a segmentation system that evaluates consumers using key demographic factors that have the greatest effect on their financial behaviors, such as income, age, presence of children, home ownership and Nielsen’ proprietary measure of Income Producing Assets (IPA). The result is a total of 58 P$YCLE® segments, within 12 P$YCLE Lifestage Groups, each with distinct usage patterns for financial and investment products and services.

Let’s take a look at the top segments from a few cities around the US. First, create a new Standard Report (under New Tabular Report > Standard Report). Next, open the variables panel and navigate to the P$YCLE® segments folder – from there, select Add All Variables from the action dropdown that appears. Close out the panel to generate your report for the US.
