Basis Data Relational Data Market size
Basis data: Quantitative data available from published sources or a previously conducted
survey that is not a direct quantification of the size of the market of interest, but that is related
to it. Market segmentation flows from the segmentation structure of the basis data; i.e., if the
basis data are segmented by country the estimated market size will be segmented by country.
Relational data: Quantitative data that provide the link between the basis data and the target
market size. The relational data are sometimes no more than rules-of-thumb, but for many
client needs the resulting level of accuracy is adequate.
