The data for the hy-X powered by econworks is generated from our nationwide network of laser scanners. At suitable measuring points in Germany's most important shopping streets, we measure pedestrian frequencies digitally: 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 99% accurate and absolutely data-protection compliant. Our data basis is free of extrapolated bias and far more than usual samples. It contains exactly what really matters: the number of people passing by a
measuring point in a certain period of time.
The size of our scanner network allows through the hy-X to make valid statements about the development of pedestrian frequency for all inner city areas in German cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants. We currently have more than 230 scanners in operation here - and the number is growing every month. More details on the measurement method for the the hystreet-index can be found here Method
The hystreet-index powered by econworks is based on a balanced aggregation of the measurement data from all installed scanners. To ensure the representativeness of the data, all important site characteristics are taken into account: :
the size of the city, the catchment area of the scanner, the spatial location of neighboring scanners in
relation to each other, the location class as well as the real estate economic significance according to
In this way, the data from each individual scanner is incorporated into the index with exactly the weight required to ensure representativeness. This ensures that our index remains stable for interpretation over long periods of time and as our scanner network continues to expand.
On request, we can also provide you with regional and local variants of our index, which are fully comparable with each other due to the aggregation mechanism described above.
