Retail Measurements


Measuring what consumers and shoppers buy and how they behave is at the core of Nielsen. We offer a unique set of tools that examine key business trends by product, category or market, using retailer scanner-based sales and causal information gathered weekly from thousands of retail outlets. When this information is integrated with data from our shopper panel, you are armed with powerful insights that allow you to identify the “why,” “what” and “who” behind changes in product sales for fine-tuned marketing strategies

We can deliver the most complete picture of your brands, consumers and shoppers: How much was sold and at what price, who bought it, where it was bought, and what else was bought with it.
