As the seniors housing and care industry's leading data provider, NIC tracks occupancy, rental rates, supply and construction data for independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs)/life plan communities (LPCs). Through the NIC MAP® client portal, subscribers have access to robust web-based tools and reports, including market-level summaries and historical time-series data for seniors housing supply and demand market fundamentals that can be accessed by filtering different data aggregations.
The NIC MAP Data Service recently unveiled its latest product enhancement to the NIC MAP Local Property Search tool as it introduced a new class of trade areas based on drive time or driving distance from a seniors housing, skilled nursing property or targeted location. Drive-time analysis allows a user to customize a trade area or primary market area (PMA) by selecting the number of minutes it takes to drive to a destination property or location, while selecting between three different traffic flow patterns, reflective of low, medium and high traffic conditions.
