Mediamark and Simmons are our two biggest databases for market research data. So, what's the difference between Simmons and Mediamark? Which one should you use? Do you have to use both?  A quick comparison of the two: 

  • Mediamark has more current data (~1.5 years)  than Simmons (3 years)
  • Simmons has "psychographics"; Mediamark does not.
  • Mediamark represents its data in tables, already compiled according to predetermined comparisons. Simmons requires you to build the table. Con: You have to build the table. Pro: You can compare any variable you want to any variable you want.
  • Mediamark offers certain pre-set filters for data (gender, age, etc.) Simmons allows you to filter data using any variable in their database.
  • Both can export data to Excel or .csv (comma separated values) files.
