Meanwhile data consultancy CACI has been appointed as sole data provider to the UK advertising industry’s Joint Industry Committee for Population Standards (JICPOPS) – which is a new one on me.
This rather daunting-sounding task involves providing advertisers and market researchers across all media sectors – including online, newspapers, broadcast, radio and out-of-home – with a definitive set of demographic and household estimations. Bodies relying on the info include the IPA (Institute of Practitioners in Advertising), the MRS (Market Research Society), the NRS (National Readership Survey), the ISBA, JICREG, BARB, RAJAR, Route and UKOM (UK Online Measurement Company). CACI previously worked as part of a team on the business.
Roger Holland, Executive Chairman at JICPOPS executive chairman Roger Holland says: “CACI has been our trusted partner for almost two decades. They have proved time and again that they set the standard for providing UK population statistics. This is why we have now selected them as our exclusive data partner. JICPOPS will continue to enable standardised market research in the UK and an invaluable resource for the British media and marketing industries.”
