To build models to predict customer behavior, I am searching for individual-level contractual data over multiple years (i.e. > 3 years). My focus is to assess the quality of long-term predictions, thus the longer the time period the better. (See here for a similar question on transactional data.)

Minimum requirement in terms of variables would be:

  1. Customer ID
  2. Start Date Contract
  3. End Date Contract
  4. Contractual Fees
  5. (If firm sells multiple types of contracts: Contract Type)

In a perfect world, these datasets would be released under a GPL like license and also include information like:

  • Date of first contract ever (which facilitates cohort analysis)
  • Socio-demographic information on the individual customer

Examples are manifold and include data from insurances, SAAS firms, VOD subscription services, ...

  • B2G contracts: github.com/antontarasenko/gpq Jun 29 '16 at 18:13
  • That's unfortunately from the perspective of a single buyer/contractee, I am looking for data from the perspective of the vendor.

  • These are 200+ agencies making purchases independently. Jun 30 '16 at 15:11
  • This data provides a good overview in a specific area. Unfortunately, this doesn't allow to analyze customer behavior in any traditional way. Thus, we need one firm that offers one or multiple services/products/contracts and its customers.
