2. Model (aggregate)

If your data needs do not fit nicely into a pre-determined region, period, or set of data attributes found on YE, BDRC will aggregate and model custom regions to your specifications. Your scope can be a combination of any YTS field variables.

BDRC will also take any data set and match it against YTS and aggregate data for your research project. Commonly a set of names is matched against YTS to enable the power of location, jobs and industry segments.
