Generations Matter and Why That’s Important

Age alone does not provide insight as to how consumers choose to fulfill the choices and necessities of lifestage. Generation does.

These generational mindsets, cured by the formative events experienced while the generation came of age, have shaped their values and have demonstrated staying power throughout their lifetime.

But while core values are reflected by each generation, they are not monolithic. And so we created MindBase®, to identify unique consumer segments and the attitudes and values that bind them as a generation but set them apart as individual cohorts

Projected onto a U.S. marketing database of 240+MM adults, MindBase can be linked to digital platforms and your own customer database for insight and activation.
