Nielsen Retail Scanner Data
Retail Scanner Data consist of weekly pricing, volume, and store environment information generated by point-of-sale systems from more than 90 participating retail chains across all US markets. Data begin in 2006 and includes annual updates. Access is available to MIT faculty and PhD students only. PhD students need to be working under the supervision of an tenured or tenure-track MIT faculty member. Further, that professor needs to be an "advisor under contract" with Kilts.
