Research labor pools from different angles of view

Colossus data can tell companies a lot about the labor potential in specific markets. For example, an area with a high number of degrees conferred and high income levels is likely to experience less hardship during an economic downturn due to a greater savings ability and level of discretionary spending among workers.

Colossus data is the perfect addition for companies already using the STI: PopStats data suite. While other STI data products provide companies with precise micro-level views of their consumers, trade areas, and locations, Colossus data allows them to step back and understand their trade areas from a macroeconomic perspective.
