The three Types that make up Varying Lifestyles are an unconventional group. What they share is the singular experience of living in group quarters. More than half of the households consist of African-Americans and Hispanics. Many of these residents are single or single parents working entry-level jobs in service industries. A majority of this Group lives the unique lifestyles offered by the military and university dorm life. With their low education levels and household incomes, residents lead unpretentious lifestyles.

Mosaic USA Global is a consistent segmentation system that links each of these classifications and covers 1 billion of the world’s consumers. It is based on a simple proposition that the world’s cities share common patterns of residential segregation. Using highly localized statistics, Experian has identified 10 distinct types of residential neighborhoods, each with a distinctive set of values, motivations and consumer preferences. Available countries: Visualization To help illustrate the classification and make Mosaic USA easy to interpret, we have created a set of comprehensive support materials.
