While most businesses have a feel for what is happening in their own establishment, American Buyers lets them see the big picture beyond their walls or web site. Its unique weekly and quarterly spending data, which are not available online, show the percentage of households that buy individual products and services and how much buyers pay for them, all broken down by the demographics that count—age, household income, household type, race and Hispanic origin, region of residence, and education.

The raw spending data in American Buyers are not available on any government website. They were obtained by special request from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and provide a unique look at household shopping behavior in the United States. New Strategist’s created hundreds of tables to reveal how much buyers spend during the average quarter or week.
