A letter grade (A+ to F) indicating how large the Place's business is.

infoscore.scale_grade represents a letter grade (A+ to F) indicating how large the Place's business is.

The Scale factor looks at a large variety of variables to describe a company’s relative size to all other firms in the Infogroup database. This factor takes into account standard measures of size such as location employment size and location sales volume, but also accounts for more in depth analysis, including credit score and limit, the employment size as compared to the industry average, and both the corporate structure and the size of the parent or subsidiary company of that the firm measured in new and unique ways.

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.
