Documentation

Applications

  • Household Expenditure data is useful in retail location optimization planning. It helps define where the opportunity is to reach the right type of customer (by market, region, postal code, etc.). For example, if selling pet supplies where are the households that have higher than average spending on pets?
  • Businesses use Household Expenditure data to determine the next best steps on how to expand and optimize their product offerings. By understanding the spending behaviour of consumers and trade areas, business can focus on offering the right product mix to meet needs of their customer base.
  • Expenditure data is critical in determining the top prospect households most likely to spend money on a business' goods or services helping to optimize marketing spend. For instance, a grocery store can distribute flyers to only the households around the store that spend more than average on food rather than blanketing the area with flyers.
  • This data is used for geo-spatial applications using the lat/long coordinates to build heat maps and thematic maps visually displaying the areas of highest potential for the spending on goods and services.

Select

Column select is how you specify the content of an SQL SELECT c_only, c_certain, c_columns FROM clause. It specifies as a keyword argument to the query string of API Call URL. Basic usage is a comma-separated list of column names. If not given, the default value is *(asterisk).

Example 1 :

Query : ?columns=C1,C2,C3 SQL Equivalent : Select C1,C2,C3 from DATA_PRODUCT

Example 2 :

Query : Not Given | ?columns= | ?columns=* SQL Equivalent : Select * from DATA_PRODUCT

Order

Column order is how you specify the content of an SQL ORDER BY clause. It specifies as a keyword argument to the query string of API Call URL. Basic usage is a comma-separated list of column names where each column name has an appropriate suffix (asc,desc) after _(underscore) or no suffix (means ascending).

Example :

Query : ?order_by=C1_asc,C2,C3_desc,C4_asc SQL Equivalent : Select * from DATA_PRODUCT order by C1 asc, C2, C4 desc, C4 asc

Order Type Suffix
Ascending null
Ascending asc
Descending desc

Lookup

Column lookups are how you specify the content of an SQL WHERE clause. They’re specifies as keyword arguments to the query string of API Call URL. Basic usage is appending _(underscore) then lookup type as a suffix to name of the column that you want to filter. The query parameter for a column is built like the format {COLUMN_NAME}_{LOOKUP_TYPE}

As a convenience when no lookup type is provided

Lookup Type Suffix Value Type Example SQL Equivalent
Equal to null String | Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN=VALUE
Equal to eq String | Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_eq=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN=VALUE
Not Equal to neq String | Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_neq=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN<>VALUE
Greater Than gt Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_gt=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN>VALUE
Greater Than or Equal to gte Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_gte=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN>=VALUE
Less Than lt Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_lt=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN,VALUE
Less Than or Equal to lte Numeric | Datetime ?COLUMN_lte=VALUE Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN<=VALUE
In in String ?COLUMN_in=V1,V2,V3 Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN in ('V1','V2','V3')
Not In notin String ?COLUMN_notin=V1,V2,V3 Select * from DATA_PRODUCT where COLUMN not in ('V1','V2','V3')
