With organizations striving to find high-value customers with the best segmentation tools, DELTA provides more choices to differentiate customers for profiling and modelling applications. DELTA is a distinct segmentation system based on key dimensions such as age, income, education, marital status and dwelling type. While PRIZM identifies 68 lifestyle types, DELTA classifies every postal code into one of 150 segments to provide finer analysis of the lifestyles and values of Canadians. The smaller DELTA segments roll up into the 68 PRIZM segments.
