REaD Group and More Metrics launch COVID-19 risk model

REaD Group and data analytics specialists More Metrics have partnered to create a risk model for Covid-19 to support informed decision making and responsible marketing.

Using open source data, More Metrics has created a bespoke set of data models that explore the impact of COVID-19 on the UK population. These models can help brands ensure they are targeting their marketing messages, optimising contact with customers and increasing ROI. Data used to create these models is publicly available – ideal for the current situation.

More Metrics has used existing and new datasets to create 14 risk measurements relevant to COVID-19, including Age and Household Composition: Mortality and Co-Morbidity; Economic Resilience; Risk Engagement and Infection Rates.

These bespoke models can be used for:

  • Screening to deselect vulnerable consumers for campaigns
  • Attaching codes to inbound contact data to understand the consumer they are talking to
  • Adding the data to models to ensure these factors are considered when selecting consumers for campaigns

The data is available at a range of different geographic levels: the application of each is dependent on usage. At the lowest level the models are created at OA (Output Area) level and can be attached to any individual or household with a postcode: the recommended level for most marketing applications.

REaD Group can advise marketers on how to best apply the models to make sensitive decisions and inform their marketing strategy, supporting data-driven decisions and responsible marketing.

Contact our team to discuss how these models can support responsible marketing.
