Consumers are adding more devices and screen time into their daily life. We understand how they engage and consume media across television, online, radio, mobile, tablet and print. This knowledge is critical for both content creation and media planning. It’s how we drive successful advertising strategies.

What we measure

Our solutions provide you with a comprehensive view of not only who is watching and listening but how, where, when and why—allowing you to engage audiences and optimize advertising spend across all media channels.

Our audience measurement solutions reach across media platforms, enabling us to deliver unique insights and a holistic view of consumers’ media habits.

Panel recruitment

Nielsen’s online panel uses a proprietary methodology that combines the representativeness of probability sampling with the depth provided by an online-recruited panel. The probability calibration sample provides a baseline for representative demography and online behavior. This baseline is used to create demographic and behavioral weights to correct for potential biases in the online-recruited panel.

TV Measurement

Today’s consumers are watching more TV than ever, which makes understanding what and how they’re watching an essential part of any marketing campaign. With our expansive and representative television panels, Nielsen tracks viewing behavior down to the second, revealing detailed programming and commercial engagement.

Using data from set top boxes, Nielsen delivers a constant, real-time stream of information, revealing tuning behavior during programs and commercials. We can tell clients which commercials are being watched and which have the strongest engagement and impact. We even analyze which position in the program or commercial block is most effective for a specific brand.

Audio Measurement

Using a diary method, Nielsen knows who’s listening, what they’re listening to, and how.

Nielsen has been measuring radio tune-in since 1936 and has been amplifying its capabilities ever since. Today, Nielsen provides comprehensive data and rich insights into the changing patterns of radio listening behavior in multiple countries. Our approach offers consistent, dependable data and analysis to maximize radio marketing plans.
