Open & Close Data

Easily Analyze Open and Close Data for POI

Retail locations are constantly changing. SafeGraph Core includes open and close data to help you identify trends over time and keep your models accurate.

Comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date open/close information for millions of POIs.

Maintaining a precise record of open and close data helps to maintain the integrity of a POI database and unlocks unique trends based on a changing economic landscape.

Open/close attributes in Core:

  • `opened_on` - outside year and month the POI opened
  • `closed_on` - outside year and month the POI has closed (if it has)
  • `tracking_closed_since` - year and month we started tracking close data

PRECISION

FAQ

How does SafeGraph determine POI open/close logic?

`opened_on` and `closed_on` dates are determined from metadata at the source level. If a new POI from an existing source repeatedly appears in our build pipeline, it is flagged as `opened_on` during the month in which it first appears. Similarly, if a POI from an existing source repeatedly disappears in our build pipeline, it is flagged as `closed_on` during the month in which it first disappears. These flags are added to the Places product permitting final QA checks and overall data hygiene.

View our docs page "Determining when POI Open and Close" for more info.

What is the fill rate for open and close data?

You can view fill rates for each of our columns in Core on our docs page titled Places Summary Statistics.

How often is the data updated?

Every month we update the data and deliver new files to our customers.
