University Reporter is a valuable resource when identifying who your target market is and how they function in your relation to your product. However, it can be confusing to read and understand. The guide will help you accurately read and report on your University Reporter statistics. To start, what do the subheadings mean?
Total ‘000 is the total number of people in the United States (by thousands)
‘000 is your projected audience (by thousands)
% Detail is the percent of category users that fit your criteria
% Target describes the behavior of the demographic
Index, when the index is above 100, the demographic is that much more likely to do something
Red Text indicates that the sample is too small
Now that we’ve identified what each heading means, let’s look at an example to get a better understanding.
