Howdy! I'm Kristen.
Over the past 4 years, I've pulled population demographics, business demographics and real estate data for thousands of small businesses and researchers.
You can get:
- a custom data pull starting at $199,
- a report with standard demographic data points for cities & counties for $19 or
- access to a web app for pulling lots of data starting at $20 a month.
Contact me if you have any questions about how I can help you get the demographic data you need. I do love a good question that can be answered with data!
