Features and Configurations
- What sets DPA apart from all other datasets is the fact that it includes visitors to an area. To the best of our knowledge, all of the other Daytime Population products simply measure the number of workers that are typically present in an area. Pitney Bowes’ DPA goes well beyond this to capture the full picture of the number of potential customers that come through an area at some point during normal business hours (however that is defined in each location).
- The numbers also show the potential patrons of bars, restaurants, cinemas, clubs and other businesses whose main trading hours do not fall within 9AM and 5PM.
- Daytime Population is not designed to capture those people who are present in an area solely to pick up their children from school or who pass through the area on their way to/from work as these do not contribute to the area’s economy.
- The combined Daytime Population of Australia is just over 100 million. This effectively means that the resident population of Australia is approximately present in four (4) places every day.
