As more development shops bring analytics and data mining capabilities in house, a prime dilemma that analysts face is the problem of collecting wealth indicators on their entire database. Regular wealth screenings may be out of financial reach of some organizations, or an organization may only be able to screen a fraction of the entire database. Because of these challenges, using readily available validated wealth information provided in a geographic dimension is a simple solution to allow organizations to prospect more efficiently.
