Discretionary Spending Dollars

Improve targeting and marketing models with an estimate of households' discretionary spending

Product Overview

Discretionary Spending Dollars (DS$) is a continuous household-based dollar value estimate of discretionary spending uncapped up to $1.2M. Based on a foundation of anonymous, direct-measured assets, DS$ represents a modeled dollar amount of what a household likely spends on discretionary items after accounting for the fixed expenses of life.

DS$ can be used alone or incorporated into models where consumer spending is a factor. It is best used to identify consumers with the estimated spending levels to afford various products and services and can be used in both offline and online applications.
