Data source: Kalos 2020, a worldwide survey across 15 nations, with over 7,000 respondents by Kaleidosense in partnership with JSM Analytics and Toluna. This is India specific data.
Approach: Ratings on various attitudes were considered for analysis, these attitudes related to Quality time, learning new things, Retail Experience, WFH, outdoor activities..Etc. . Check below for the list of attitudes considered for the analysis.
These inter-correlated attributes were condensed to a number of composites using data reduction techniques (factor analysis) and these composites were then used to create clusters/segments using K means algorithm. Once find the appropriate clusters /segments and then these segments further examined and profiled
Impact: From the segments and their profiles, the below are the different segments emerged from the attitudes/beliefs about Covid-19 and the derived segments are
- Pessimist (27%)
- The Wise/Silver Gen (27%)
