Hi,
I have several questions about the Restaurants data. Thanks for your time to answer them!

here is the data link: SafeGraph - Your Destination For Places Data

  1. How did you capture the “raw_visitor_count”? Is it random selection? Why “raw_visitor_count” it is not consistent with sum of the “device_type”?

  2. How did you capture the “raw_visit_count”? Does it include a visitor’s multiple visits in a POI? What is “We roughly see only 2% of actual”? Is it randomly selection?

  3. How did you structure the “visitor_home_cbg”? is the definition of home is the time POI visitors stay in that block? What does the value stand for? is it the number of devices or visitor? The sum doesn’t match the total number of visitor in the POI

  4. Can the explanation of “cbg” for “visitor_daytime_cbgs” explain other cbg variables?

  5. How did you structure the “visitor_country_of_origin”? The sum doesn’t match the total number of visitor in the POI.

  6. Does “median_dwell” mean the median of dine-in time? How to count pick up?

  7. There are outliers in “distance_from_home”, is it driven by travelers’ visits?

  8. Are numbers in “related_same_day_brand” and “related_same_month_brand” measured in percentage? If so, why the number in month is much larger than day? What is the intuition behind the formula the following formula “(visitors to both the brand and the POI / total visitors to the POI) - (visitors to the brand / all visitors in SafeGraph panel)”?

  9. What is the measure of “popularity_by_hour” and “popularity_by_day”? If they are number of visitors, the number is larger than “raw_visitor_counts”.
