The Q2 2021 Business and Location Insights data packages are now available to plug into your analytic processes. The packages include analytics-ready data from a variety of vendors as well as data-specific analysis tools which will empower users to get the most from the packaged data. Here is what you can look forward to in this release:
Refreshed Data This contains quarterly updates for D&B Business Data, Experian Consumer View, Kalibrate TrafficMetrix, and TomTom datasets.
Updated Data In addition to the quarterly refreshed data, the Q2 data package for the US Business Insights contains updated Experian 2021/2026 demographic data.
Removed Datasets As mentioned in previous posts and release notes, the Q2 2021 US Business and Location Insights will no longer include the Previous Methodology Guzzler Dataset (Q1 2015) dataset. The current methodology Drivetime dataset is not impacted and will continue to receive quarterly updates.
Corrected Data The previous annual CAPE update (Q2 2020) had an error occur during our data build causing several variables to have a value of "0" at the State level for the CAPE Five Year Estimates. This only occurred for the State level of these variables, and would only be identified by selecting a geography larger than States or the Entire US within Allocate. We updated our build process for this release (Q1 2021) and verified the error wasn't recurring. This would have impacted releases for Q2, Q3, and Q4 2020, and the Q1 2021 release.
Resources All data packages are available via the Downloads and Licenses portal. US and Canada Business Insights customers will receive their hard drives later this week, but they are also welcome to download the data from the portal.
