Hi everybody! We’re back this week with another question from our Help Desk. This time featuring SimplyAnalytics Canada. Let’s get started!
Question: How can I analyze all of the PRIZM5 segments for my target area so I can identify the most common segment?
Note: For those unfamiliar with the PRIZM data, this dataset is a marketing segmentation system where households are grouped into one of 68 unique segments based on: demographics, lifestyles, consumer behaviour and settlement patterns in Canada. These segments help you understand what customers are buying, doing and thinking. This is ideal for target marketing, trade area analysis, merchandising and media planning.
Please give us an email if you would like a free trial to the PRIZM data – it is available for both SimplyAnalytics USA and SimplyAnalytics Canada.
Answer: The quickest and easiest way to analyze many similar variables at once is to utilize the Related Data Table. The Related Data Table automatically adds in any similar variables to your chosen one. In this example, we’ll add one PRIZM segment, and the report will add all of them in. This can be used with any variable or dataset – give it a try!
