A census is the collection of information on outlets operating in a particular area, previously outlined for the study. It starts by examining legal data obtained with equipment used in the field of work as well by key technologies and ends with an analysis of the breadth of the given product range and of the turnover for key product groups. The aim of a census is to form and optimize a company’s sales policy.

The market entry of a new product is preceded by a series of searches with the aim of determining the competitive position of the brand, the form of distribution channels and any plans to promote the product. One of these searches is the census.


  • It can obtain a database of retail outlets in a given region
  • It helps build a model for the distribution of a new product to the market
  • It analyses the market saturation of a specific product or group of products
  • It obtains the desired return on the implementation of a sales plan, e.g. the “marginality” of the territory (district), the level of consumer demand, the population.
  • It takes into account the geography of the competitors’ outlets, the total “permeability” of the nearby streets, parking availability and the presence of the main streets with continuous flows of traffic.

The census is a comprehensive study that is performed in the field by a team of auditors. Key criteria of the questionnaire include: region, address, location classifier, product representation among others. By conducting a census, the client receives a comprehensive overview of all outlets where they product could be presented.
