Marketing analysis and research design for 60647

Short presentation highlighting how the consumers in the 60647 zip code differ from those in the Total U.S

Part I

For the first part of this exercise, download the files from the Census Bureau using the Government data mining tool (http://www.factfinder.census.gov/).

Create a short presentation for the Marketing department highlighting
how the consumers in the 60647 zip code differ from those in the Total U.S.

Create a graph that compares the categories from each file you consider relevant.

Create a 3-5 slide presentation with in-depth narratives in the speaker notes section that displays the graph(s) and analysis on how the 60647 categories you chose differ from the national profile.

Search for your data sets using www.factfinder.census.gov.

You can enter the ZIP code in the "Fast Access to Information" search window to obtain the data for 60647.

The site also presents the national demographics on the same results page any time you type in a ZIP code.

Compare only those categories that you find are significant to your analysis in demonstrating whether the US marketing advertising schemes can or cannot be effectively used in this ZIP code. (Think of areas like employment, income, housing, age, education, etc.)

Remember that you can copy from the web and paste into an Excel
