  FuzzyLogic - misspelled names in NickName vs Surname
Posted by: RobS - 06-26-2017, 11:41 AM - Forum: Peacock Data Product Support - Replies (1)

Hello,
After importing the fuzzy logic data for both NickNames and Surnames, I noticed that, for NickName matching, the correctly spelled name is in the Name1 field, with the mis-spelled variant in Name2.

However, this is the opposite case for Surnames, and I ended up changing my script to import the reverse order fuzzy logic listing, after having imported the surname relationship table in normal order.

I suppose that, depending upon how the data is used, it may not matter which name is in Name1 and which is in Name2. However, I thought it helpful to point out this inconsistency for others.

Regards,
Rob

  New pdCountry 2.0 (Pro and Standard)
Posted by: Admin - 09-23-2014, 12:51 AM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Today we released a new version of our international reference and demographics database software, pdCountry. It is available in Pro and Standard editions.

The new product was delayed about three weeks to await the results of the Scottish independence referendum. We did not want the software to become instantly out-of-date.

Special offer

For a limited time get the new software for half the list price. pdCountry Pro (list $95) is currently $47.50. pdCountry Standard (list $59) is now $29.50.

Product information

The world is becoming a smaller place and a handy collection of key country data is invaluable. The new pdCountry version 2.0 fits the bill in good fashion representing the entire globe. This easy-to-use, comprehensive, and up-to-date reference package provides core country information, GeoCoding data, and a host of useful demographic variables.

The Pro version covers demographic information from 1970 through 2012 while the Standard edition covers 2003 through 2012. Both cover 29 United Nations-defined regions (including the World as a region itself) and 211 countries, plus some former countries.

CORE COUNTRY INFORMATION

  • ISO Numeric Country (or Area) Code
  • Regions 
  • Country (or Area) Name
  • ISO, FIPS, and IOC Country Abbreviations
  • National Capital
  • Language
  • Citizenry (Noun and Adjective)
  • National Currency
  • ITU Country Calling Code
  • Internet Portals
GEOCODING DATA
  • Latitude and Longitude Coordinates
  • Land and Water Area
DEMOGRAPHIC VARIABLES
  • Population
  • GDP and its breakdown
  • Value Added By Economic Activity
  • Implicit Price Deflators
  • GNI
  • Exchange Rates
A total of 156 fields of information are available including 117 devoted to the demographic variables. Statistics are calculated in multiple ways, including in the national currency, US dollars, current prices, constant 2005 prices, rates, and/or shares. They are drawn from United Nations aggregate statistical data and are the latest information available.

Uses for this database are innumerable, and no company or organization that does international business should be without it. Financial companies, travel agents, webmasters, news agencies, research institutions, schools, students, and government will find it of particular value.

  Need old user guide for 2000 census data
Posted by: Xms - 09-12-2014, 12:38 PM - Forum: Peacock Data Product Support - Replies (2)

I need to drag out my old PDCENSUS 2000 file, but I no longer have the manual. Can you tell me what the summary level codes stand for? They are the one letter codes in the fifth field.

Also, is it possible to get a list of the census demographics definitions?

In the pro edition of the zip code database there is a field for carrier routes. They have a letter followed by three numbers. Can you tell me what the different letters mean, like C1234, B1234, R1234, etc?

  Importing nickname data
Posted by: Amigo - 09-09-2014, 08:14 AM - Forum: Peacock Data Product Support - Replies (2)

I’m trying to import the nickname data into a Postgres database and it appears there are characters in the file which are not supported by UTF8.

PG::CharacterNotInRepertoire: ERROR:  invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8": 0xc5 0x53

Can you point me in the right direction to resolve this issue?
