Market Area

A Nielsen Designated Marketing Area (DMA) is a geographic market design that defines each television market exclusive of others, based on measured viewing patterns. Each market's DMA consists of all the counties in which the home market stations receive a preponderance of viewing, and every county is allocated exclusively to one DMA - there is no overlap. The total of all DMAs represents the total television households in the U.S. For example, Montgomery County, Maryland is in the Washington DC DMA.

Program Name

A Program Name is the title by which a regular television broadcast is identified. For example, "Wishbone" is a children's program. This is converted to upper case for queries since this field is stored in upper case in the database.


A State is a geopolitical area about which you may request information. The United States includes the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and the several territories, such as the Trust Territories.
