Planners, marketers and executives use DaytimePop to gain a deeper understanding of the daytime demand, customer traffic and population within their trade areas and target markets. This database is our authoritative estimate of the population that is reachable in any geographic area during daytime hours. It provides a breakdown of populations at home and at work, as opposed to census data that captures an area's nighttime population. The DaytimePop counts are based on DemoStats and Businesses databases, as well as other reliable sources.
