The statistical model underlying the advertising numbers in our reports is used by more than 1,000 media companies in North America. It has been under continuous development since 1990 as a basic model for gauging advertising spending in any geographically defined market. The methodology is based on the concept that advertising expenditures are essentially equal to advertising receipts at the national level. The heart of the methodology is the manner in which these totals are allocated among individual counties.
