By geo-coding your sample you can reduce costs and complete your research projects faster. Geo-coding means adding geographical information to records. Geo-coding lists of respondents or phone numbers can, in some cases, allow you to cross-tabulate survey responses based on a variety of geographical areas with a high degree of accuracy. We can identify and remove out-of-geography numbers from your phone lists before going to the field. This can reduce the number of non-productive calls.
You can order standard geo-codes for any list of US or Canadian phone numbers. Geo-codes are appended to each record on the sample list based on phone listing information or based on probable location information added by our system.
The codes are obtained from a variety of official sources such as the US or Canadian Census Bureau, the US or Canadian Postal Service, as well as other sources. We have cross-referenced these databases with phone number databases to create an extremely accurate and up-to-date matching system.
The following standard geo-codes are provided:
|Region Code (5)
Division Code (9)
|Province, Territory or Regions
Economic Regions (ER)
Census Metropolitan Areas (CMA)
Census Agglomerations (CA)
Federal Electoral Districts
We can geo-code using a number of non-standard codes, based on your specific geo-coding requirements.
