why we use socioeconomic status & family orientation

The two most powerful drivers of why different types of people choose to live in particular places are Family Orientation and Socioeconomic Status...

  • Family Orientation discriminates between family areas where there are kids, mortgages & large houses and non-family areas where young and older independent singles & couples choose to live. Family Orientation taps into lifecycle stage which is a key driver of needs across most categories.

  • Socioeconomic Status (SES) represents the combined effect of educational attainment, occupational status & income and is a key driver of the spending power and quality of purchases made by people to meet their needs. SES drives the price/quality trade-off that is often the most critical factor in brand positioning.

While psychographics influence consumer behaviour at the individual level, they tend to be overpowered in geospatial data by more powerful factors like spending power, cultural influences and established household expenditure patterns, which are all integral to geoSmart's construction.
