The two most significant features of JCB Consumption NOW are the breadth and speed of analysis. JCB Consumption NOW enables users to obtain information by a number of types of sales and industry, including ecommerce and other types of consumption which had not been accurately reported in statistics before, and makes multifaceted analysis of this information possible.
The other major consumption statistics are based on surveys, which take a long time to research and report, but JCB Consumption NOW uses actual payment data for superior responsiveness.
JCB Consumption NOW indexes can be used as one source of information for retail and service industry sales analysis and for government policy evaluation. Data breakdown by consumer attribute makes it possible to focus on specific age, gender, and residential area segments, something that was very difficult before. *Services available vary by member status.
