Scarborough Puerto Rico will provide an invaluable resource to support the
Puerto Rico media outlets and the agency community in the planning, buying and
selling of advertising. The service can also be used to generate new business,
conduct competitive analysis, and create winning marketing plans.
Additionally, Scarborough Puerto Rico will incorporate data from The Nielsen

drawn from the service on how many consumers use media or engage in an
activity, comprehensive details as to who they are, what they buy and their
attitudes on a variety of key characteristics.
