Many subscribers have demanded a larger time-series in Consumer
Pyramids than the 12 quarters and 3 years that the service offered. We
are pleased to announce that we have extended the time-series to 16
quarters and 4 years.
This increase in the time-series provided in Consumer Pyramids
comes along with the release of the September and December 2014 results.
This change in the availability of the time-series comes
along with a change in the presentation of time as well. Hitherto,
the time axis was available as a drop-down list from the top left of
the user-interface. Now, the time axis is shown prominently in a left
panel. All the 16 quarters and the 4 years are listed in this left panel.
With this the user-interface allows an easy navigation across
time (through the left panel) and space (through the geography
garland at the top).
While we have extended the time-span covered in the service, we
would recommend some caution in the interpretation of some
time-series trends. This caution is particularly warranted in
cases where the underlying sample is small. If a time trend is
found to be “suspect” please write to us on the Seek
Clarifications platform and will try and help.
