Esri Data Update

The annual Esri data refresh includes more than 1 billion data points including spending data, demographics and lifestyle information! Esri data helps power our commercial market analyses, federal and local Economic Area Reports, and residential neighborhood statistics.

In addition to displaying the latest data, from 2018, we expanded the spending indicators in the market analysis type Where are the right people for a business? We expanded the website spending choices to include spending on Etsy and added a new “Brick and Mortar” (physical stores) category. You can now track spending habits by specific chains. 





Commercial Tenant Data Update 

This release updates tenant data for commercial properties to the January 2019 data set from SMR Research. Tenant data is displayed on the Property Details page of a commercial property and can be included in a Commercial Property Report. This data, covering more than 8.5 million tenants, is updated quarterly.
