What is a power ratio?

By Richard Wilson AAA
A:

A power ratio is a method used by media companies to measure revenue performance compared to the audience share it controls. In order to use the power ratio, a company must know three numbers: the total market revenue, the company's revenue, and the audience share. The goal for media companies is to receive a high score in this ratio.

A power ratio often is used to compare the performance of different media forms against similar competitors. A high power ratio means that more revenue is received per thousand visitors or participants within a given medium. Power ratios are used both by media firms to evaluate performance and occasionally by large media corporations who seek to buy out smaller media outlets.
