How We Do It
To measure linear television consumption, Numeris uses a panel of randomly selected households that are representative of the Canadian population against specific criteria. Reported at the minute level, television consumption of each household members is captured passively at a sub-minute level of granularity with the help of a portable people meter (PPM). This meter measures all live viewing, whether broadcasted or streamed, and catch-up viewing made on PVR up to 28 days. All viewing is weighted accurately against different variables to properly represent the population of each measured market. Numeris currently reports television audiences at the National level, for western Canada, Ontario, French Quebec and Atlantic and for the top 5 Canadian markets.
Starting this year, Numeris will enhance its television audience data with the integration of large data sources from Set-top-box, resulting in increased granularity, reduction of zero tuning programs/stations and improved metrics stability.
Using a panel of randomly selected households that are representative of the Canadian population against specific criteria, Numeris measures digital video consumption with the help of a meter attached to a participating household’s router. The meter captures and measures online video consumption activities, in-home and out-of-home. on all devices. Additionally, census data is used to calibrate encoded video content which enables more granularity, and to identify viewing location. In Fall 2021, Numeris began reporting digital video audience for Ontario, French Quebec, Toronto and Montreal markets.
