Greetings Everyone!

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 Experian 2023/2028 demographic data, D&B Business Data, Experian ConsumerView, and TomTom datasets.

    • The new 2020 US Census data contains new and updated geographies for the Block Group and Census Tracts for US Experian & Full US, and the US Census 2020 DHC installer.

    • Changes to the geographies and variables may have caused changes in their saved configuration in Allocate Input and Allocate Append tools for the Experian US and Full US Datasets.

    • These changes will break workflows configured with previously released data packages
