  • Demographic Data—More than 1,500 demographic data variables, including Esri's newly released 2006/2011 current-year estimates and five-year projections, are in this release of ArcGIS Business Analyst 9.1. These data variables are augmented by current-year estimates for variables, such as employee population; disposable income; population by occupation/industry; and consumer expenditures at the state, county, ZIP Code, census tract, block group, core based statistical area, and Designated Market Area geography levels.
  • Business Data—Updated to January 2006, the Infogroup national database of approximately 11 million U.S. businesses includes data by SIC and NAICS industry codes, sales volume, business location, business name, employee count, and more. This data in ArcGIS Business Analyst 9.1 can be used to identify customers or competitors.
  • Shopping Center Data—A national database from the Directory of Major Malls (DMM) lists detailed information for 4,200 major U.S. shopping centers, malls, and lifestyle/specialty centers; more than 195,000 individual tenant locations; and approximately 19,000 very important person contacts. Data variables include the center name, gross leasable area, type of center, total retail sales, distance to the nearest competing center, distance to the nearest major city, the name of the nearest major city, and the total number of stores. Information such as the store name and square footage is also included for up to four anchor stores. The DMM database is updated to January 2006.
  • Street Data—Version 8.0 of the Dynamap/Transportation nationwide street database from Tele Atlas/TomTom is included in ArcGIS Business Analyst. This database combines robust routing attributes, full geocoding functionality, and attractive map display capabilities for users who prefer a single street database.
