Experian Marketing Services obtain a wide variety of non-personal data from several sources to build our products and services, which provide marketing insights to our clients. These sources include Government sources, publicly available records, surveys and market research and data from commercial organisations.
Such as UK Census data from the Office of National Statistics, providing aggregate statistics on geographic areas for characteristics such as household composition, car ownership, employment status and dwelling type; and anonymised vehicle data at postal sector level from the DVLA, including details such as make and model of vehicle (e.g. number of Ford Mondeo’s in CV32 5).
Such as the Crime Survey for England and Wales, available from the Office of National Statistics and which includes crime data by category of crime at postcode level from publicly available sources such as police recorded crime; and Council Tax Band for properties in England and Wales from the Valuation Office Agency.
Such as self-reported consumer survey information, aggregated consumer panels and market research surveys where data has been anonymised and no individual can be identified. Such surveys provide insight about consumer buying decisions, attitudes, behaviours or lifestyles. They can be produced by Government departments, such as the Living Costs and Food Survey from the Office of National Statistics; or by commercial organisations, such as the surveys conducted by YouGov and the Target Group Index from Kantar Media where we are supplied with anonymised survey responses aggregated to Mosaic segment level.
