Our business is helping companies turn data into insights. And we can’t help but wonder: what does the data show when it comes to where coronavirus is most prevalent?
Population growth is often a factor that service businesses and retailers look for when choosing locations. And while many are drawn to the large cities, smaller cities can offer just as much potential. That’s why in late 2017, we shared the top 16 fast-growing large micropolitan areas in the United States. And over two years later, it’s time for an update.
It’s that time of year when those of us in the business of retail real estate research are looking backward at the year prior. What retail categories grew? Which ones shrank? SiteSeer’s data partner, ChainXY, provides insights into over 4,500 chains in the United States and Canada. We dug into their three broad areas (retail, restaurant and services) to collect a snapshot of how chains that existed on January 1, 2019, grew or shrunk over the year.
Just as retail companies of all sizes have had to adapt in the digital era, so has the health care industry. Health care organizations have had to take a new approach to site selection, indeed, but for this data study, we’re looking at something else: the cost of health care.

If you’re a business that serves families with children, you’ve probably wondered: what areas in the United States are seeing the biggest increase in children? For our latest data study, we decided to take a look.
When you’re expanding your business, knowing the potential of your market is so important. And for many growing retailers, population growth is an important factor.
Growing retailers look to expand into markets where concentrations of their target consumers live, work or shop. A consumer’s lifestyle and life stage often define their preferences and behavior, and few factors better determine one’s lifestyle than education level. For this study, we wanted understand which markets were seeing an increase in education levels. To measure this, we looked at the change in the percentage of persons over age 25 that had no bachelor’s or master’s degree in 2013 compared to 2018. We also controlled for increases in bachelor’s degrees at the expense of master’s degrees, e.g. markets where the percentage of bachelor’s degrees increased while the percent of master’s degrees decreased.
