A letter grade (A+ to F) indicating if the Place is in a growing industry in its area.

infoscore.industry_growth_grade represents a letter grade (A+ to F) indicating if the Place is in a growing industry in its area.

This factor is built from historical business data and considers three different measures of change - number of businesses, employment, and sales volume - to identify the industries that are expanding and shrinking. Headquarters of parent and subsidiary companies have been scored at a national level, while branches and single locations have been scored at a ZIP code level.

Infoscore includes a numeric value (0-100) and letter grade (A+ to F) that measures the “strength” of every location-level record within the Infogroup Business Database. This score, where 100 is “best” and 0 is “worst”, is derived from several data and business related factors leveraging Infogroup’s assets. Infoscore aids in pinpointing relevant businesses for prioritizing, prospecting, personalization and real-time marketing.

The Infoscore value is comprised of the scores of seven factors, the first six of which are built independently of one another. Each factor is scored separately (from 0 to 100) and represents a record’s strength or weakness related to a particular attribute which makes up the business record, or to the business itself. Higher scores represent a “stronger” record.
