Under the agreement, Media Metrix and ComQUEST Research will combine their resources and expertise to provide an independent, meter-based Internet and digital media audience measurement service for Canada. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.
The services provided include Internet statistics such as audience size, reach, frequency and time spent for the Internet market as a whole, by category and for specific Web Sites and Internet properties. These audience data are linked to detailed demographic profiles, collected from panelists.
Media Metrix said the Canadian operation will be "the first service to begin actively recruiting, measuring and collecting data from a representative panel of Canadian Internet users by utilizing the Media Metrix software meter which resides on panelists' computers to automatically track Internet usage."
ComQUEST Research Inc., formed in 1989, is a subsidiary of BBM Bureau of Measurement. The company's practice encompasses a range of market, public attitude, and media research areas.
