TAB Out of Home Ratings are standardized, quantitative and reliable, providing exhaustive demographic information across the country. Now that TAB Ratings has been unanimously voted the official currency for out of home measurement, an increasing number of media thought leaders are endorsing the system's efficacy.

At the heart of this confidence is the breadth and depth of what we report. For example:

››  Number of DMAs covered 205
››  Number of CBSAs covered 950
››  Number of Posters/Junior Posters and Bulletins 287,000+
