Why are there multiple versions of Core Places? How do I get older / historical versions of Core Places?

SafeGraph does not support historical or old versions of Core Places. You should not use different versions of the Core Places in the same analysis.

Every month SafeGraph releases a new update to Core Places, and Release Notes are available to highlight the changes. This monthly update reflects both real-world changes (like store openings and closings) as well as SafeGraph improvements, such as expanding the scope of places included, improvements to data accuracy, and new features.
