SocialValues - Canada

PRIZM® is linked to Environics SocialValues, the only truly psychographic data built into a segmentation system in Canada. Every year since 1983, scientists at our sister company, Environics Research, have conducted a nationwide survey that measures human motivation and social relations, employing advanced techniques to understand the mindset of Canadians. The resulting SocialValues dataset, based on more than 10 000 respondents over a rolling 2 year period, measures 95 values and 166 attitudes—such as importance of price, attraction to nature and ecological lifestyle—to help users determine the mindset of their customers to better reach and serve them. With the SocialValues dataset, users will understand what matters most to their customers and how it affects the purchases they make—helping businesses and not-for-profits develop communications and merchandising strategies that speak to their customers’ concerns and worldview.
