Election app uses predictive analytics to measure voting in your neighborhood
Irvine, Calif., October 15, 2012 – Alteryx, Inc., the leading provider of Strategic Analytics software, announced today that as part of its Alteryx Analytics Gallery, it will offer an analytical application to the public focused on the November U.S. Presidential election, allowing users to plug in their zip codes or addresses and see the predicted voting patterns in their local vicinity, or anywhere across the United States.
The election app is created on the Alteryx Strategic Analytics platform, which is leveraging data from USA Today/Gallup Presidential polling data, Experian household data, U.S. Census data and third-party registered voter information. It then uses statistical and predictive analysis to predict local voter preferences. Once the application is run, a visual report highlights presidential preferences mapped to a zip code or hyper-local drive time analysis from a provided street address in percentages, local demographic information including mean age, income and housing valuations, as well as providing a national map with the latest predicted polling data at the county level.
“Alteryx decided to leverage what we do best and created a Presidential election application that is easy for anyone to use which predicts the latest in candidate preferences at a hyper-local level, verses state or national level,” stated George Mathew, president and chief operating officer at Alteryx. “This is an example of how leveraging all of the right data, whether in business or in the case of the election, can Humanize Big Data to gain the most strategic value out of the information available. With this app, Alteryx will continue to monitor and alert users to those battle ground counties in the states that are key to this election.”
Anyone can access the Alteryx Analytics Gallery and run this application by going to gallery.alteryx.com.
