Return-Path Data Lexicon: 'Average' Reach Metrics

CIMM is taking a pro-active role in advancing new media nomenclature and processes with both its Lexicon (terms and definitions associated with return-path data measurement) and Asset Identification Primer (glossary of asset terms). These documents form the basis of this column, which offers a common language for RPD nomenclature that can expedite the rollout of the data for its many industry applications.

As with last week’s column on Average Frequency (Return-Path Data Lexicon: 'Average' Frequency Metrics), we examine the definitions of Frequency’s companion metric, Average Reach. Interestingly, while Average Frequency definitions include interactivity components, so far the various definitions of Reach tend to remain television-centric. This might be because it is much harder to measure unique, unduplicated usage across platforms.
