Do You Know Your Patient Market?

Are you surrounded by “Blue Blood Estates,” “Movers & Shakers” and the ultimate “Upper Crust?”

I always knew Suzanne and I lived in a nice neighborhood, but never realized that we had made it to the “Upper Crust” until I popped my zip code into Claritas Inc’s. Prizm database. The company’s newest segmentation system defines every neighborhood in the U.S. in terms of 66 distinct lifestyle types using segmentation techniques.

Just enter your 5-digit ZIP Code and find your neighborhood’s top five segments, along with some descriptive detail about each segment’s lifestyle traits. For example – my 94920 zip code yielded:
