You will get a clear understanding of consumer purchase behavior, interaction data and demographics in detail that will help you with all future projects using panel data.

Next, you'll get an in-depth look at retail POS data, including retailer and third party scanned sales data. You will learn how it is derived, and understand key measures and definitions that relate to POS data. Trends, out of stocks, sales and profitability, distribution and shopper insights will be reviewed to help you learn how to maximize its potential.  Learn how to calculate shelf capacity, comp stores, gross margin, markup, initial markup, markdown, and margin.
