Demographics: market research reports
You can also use demographic market research reports to assist in characterizing a specific demographic profile. Creating a profile will provide information about a typical member for a certain group to aid in creating a visual of a hypothetical target market. As an example, a marketer may focus on members of a population that are male, single, between the ages of 17-24, and college educated.
Demographics are the traits of a selected human population. Demographic trends can be determined through data consisting of age, disability, race, gender, income, mobility, home ownership, location, employment status, and/or education level. By utilizing this trends data, you can analyze changes in a particular population over a specified period of time. You can use this data to assist with economic and marketing decisions in industries such as public policy or sociology.
