TURF ANALYSIS

TURF analysis, also known as Total Unduplicated Reach and Frequency is an analysis technique that is used to calculate the unduplicated reach of a product line or a range of products. It is a very common technique that is used in market research to assess the combination of products that will ensure maximum reach and frequency of purchase.  The basics of TURF analysis are focused more on reach than frequency.  We believe in adding a layer to extend the baseline reach analysis into a more real-world view that incorporates purchase frequency.
