Costco Shopper Demographics
Who shops at a retailer?
Among InfoScout panelists, Asians account for 10% of dollars spent at Retailer X.
However, Asians account for only 5% of dollars spent across all retailers in total.
Therefore, the index value for Asians = (10% / 5% * 100) = 200.
An index value less than 100 means the demographic spends proportionately less on the given brand.
