Advan - General Questions and Support

Use this thread to ask any general questions about the Advan data.


I am looking for the documentation of Advan data and I can’t find it anywhere on the site. Should I use the documentation from SafeGraph as a reference if the Advan documentation is not available? Thanks.


I just sent you an email with the documentation attached.

Here is a link to the documentation: Documentation (Public) - Google Drive

I am writing to inquire about the census block group (cbg) data that is being used in the monthly pattern dataset. Specifically, I am interested in knowing which year of the cbg data is being used for the 2019 and 2022 monthly pattern datasets.

Could you please confirm which year of the census block group data the monthly pattern dataset is used for aggregation? Knowing this information would be very helpful for my analysis.

Thank you for your assistance.

@lejanek I found this documentation from SafeGraph about the CBGs they use. I believe Advan used the same source when they transferred over this product. Looks like 2016 vintage of the 2010 - 2019 CBG data. Hope that helps
