Claritas Consumer Profiles is a premium dataset within Data Planet. Claritas, a leading provider of intelligent marketing information and target marketing, provides information about people, households, and businesses within any geographic area in the United States.

Claritas Content: The Claritas Consumer Profiles datasets comprise three different geo-demographic segmentation products: ConneXions®, PRIZM® Premier, and P$YCLE® Premier.

  • ConneXions, the Claritas segmentation system for communications marketers, classifies US households into 53 consumer segments based on the video, voice, and data purchasing preferences of that household.
  • PRIZM Premier classifies US households into 68 consumer segments based on household purchasing preferences and demographic and socioeconomic characteristics.
  • P$YCLE Premier, the Claritas segmentation system for financial marketers, classifies US households into 60 consumer segments based in part on the income-producing assets (IPA) of the household.

Claritas Consumer Profiles help identify groups of consumers who are as likely, more likely, or less likely than the average segment, to engage in various behaviors.
