The Method

The sizing estimates are developed using a combination of sources including the Survey of Consumer Finance, as well as Nielson-Claritas.

The Survey of Consumer Finance provides the framework and allows Phoenix Marketing International to determine the general distribution of households by their level of investable assets.

Estimates are further refined using the age and income distributions provided by Claritas. Together, these inputs enabled them to estimate the number of households by investable assets at a national level.

Formulas are then created by applying national estimates to closely linked variables developed by the Census This allowed them to obtain estimates at smaller units of geography.
