SiteSeer is in the analytics business, so we’re always looking at the data and numbers behind things! During this Thanksgiving week, we thought it might be fun to share a few facts about this beloved American holiday. Here are 10 interesting things you might not know about Thanksgiving, the traditional turkey feast, and more:
Is your bowl of candy ready to be distributed to all the little ghosts and goblins who ring your doorbell tonight?
You may have heard the news last week that SiteSeer is soon updating its data to reflect the 2020 U.S. Census. As such, we wanted to release our newest iteration of our semi-annual population study.
People in the U.S. are on the move always! With our recent annual/semi-annual population data update last month, we give you our latest study of population change in metro and micro areas between October 2021 and October 2022.
As 2022 comes to a close and SiteSeer clients are looking toward and planning for 2023, we wanted to revisit a topic we’ve discussed on the blog in years past: which retail categories grew and shrunk (physical stores/locations) during the year (to date). To refresh your memory, we first analyzed data on store openings and closures for 2020, and then again for 2021 (or more accurately, January-October 2021).
In our last iteration of this population study, we compared two critical periods: April 2020 (the onset of COVID-19) to April 2021 (when vaccines started rolling out in the United States). The update before that, we compared October 2019 to October 2020.
SiteSeer is in the business of site selection software, but we do a lot more than that. We help growing businesses with their market strategy, including which markets to expand into, where to find the best sites and how to forecast store performance.
Back in February 2021, we wanted to take a look at the year 2020 and figure out what retail categories did well (grew) and which ones struggled (shrunk). The year started off as many years do and then when the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak to be a global pandemic on March 11th, life as we all know it changed forever.
