Is there a newer version of the Experian USA Mosaic Reference Guide?  The one that's 319 pages.  The one in the documentation has a footnote identifying it as "Version 2 / 2013."  I imagine the mosaic definitions and %'s of the US pop have changed in the nearly 5 years since this version was published.




Hi @BPurcell, I have emailed you the updated version of that document and it will replace the current Mosaic Reference Guide in the upcoming Q4 2017 release. If you are looking for additional information on Mosaic, end users can access Experian’s Mosaic portal www.segmentationportal.com. A username and password is required and users can request one by emailing segmentationportal@experian.com. The portal and its contents are supported by Experian.
