Trash and treasures of duplication

Date of publication: June 9, 2002


This paper presents early cross-media results from Arbitron's 2002 portable people meter (PPM) panel in the Philadelphia (United States) market. Previous results from the small-scale PPM panel in Wilmington (Delaware) in 2001 suggested important variations in cross-media duplication between radio and television. The present results build upon the earlier findings, extending the learning from PPM's capture of both television and radio via a single, unified measurement platform. This unified cross-media panel method provides insight into the consumer target's media behavior and to various effective strategies to maximize target reach and efficiency.
