PHQ Rank™ provides an event impact standard across all regions

Instantly understand and compare predicted event impact, no matter where, when, or what kind of event is occurring.

Not all events are created equal

Thousands of events happen every week. If you work in a global business, there will be hundreds of impactful events you need in your models every single day. PHQ Rank™ is a score given to every event to quickly communicate its predicted impact.
How it works

PHQ Rank™ is our core rank

PredictHQ's ranking technologies assign a logarithmically scaled numerical value between 0 and 100 to each event. These correspond with a five-level hierarchical impact schema of the event's estimated impact.

How to use PHQ Rank

Scalable solution: plug into forecasting models

Every single event has a PHQ Rank™ and you can filter and sort our API with it. It can be used in conjunction with other filters to retrieve events that are most relevant. Use it to find the high impact events or the clusters of multiple smaller events that combine for major impact.

PredictHQ’s Ranks explained

We have created three proprietary ranks (so far) to provide deeper insight on an event. A single event can have three different rankings.

  • PHQ Rank™
    Our general rank that represents impact. Based on estimated attendance.
  • Local Rank™
    Predicts the impact of an event on its location. Based on estimated attendance relative to local population density and other factors.
  • Aviation Rank™
    Represents the potential impact of an event on air travel bookings. Based on models trained on historical flight traffic.
Our data pipeline

Accurate forecasts need event rankings

Rankings are a key step in PredictHQ’s enrichment process. Once an event is verified and enriched, ranking enables our customers to identify the most relevant and impactful events for their business at scale and prepare to make the most of them.

You can’t prepare for what you don’t see coming

Harness the power of demand intelligence

Knowing the impact of demand causal factors like events will transform your business. The American Society of Hematology has a $45M estimated economic impact — and that's only one event in one city.
