Global Data Sources Compared

Data Sources

Our advice to US marketers that are expanding to international markets always begins with the need to re-set expectations. The complexities of Data Privacy compliance, and a vastly longer execution time are 2 things notably different than in the US.

But nothing is as dramatically different as the quantity and quality of data available in the US, as compared to any other country in the world. As we continue to examine Global Data Quantities, let's take a look at the number of data sources available in 8 big International markets as compared to quantities in the US.

Our first chart shows the number of Business and Consumer sources available for the BRIC countries and 4 top EU countries.
