This week marks the first time that NPD has generated unit sales through its DecisionKey platform. Since BookScan was acquired by NPD from Nielsen in January 2017, NDP has been migrating the data from Nielsen. With the migration completed, slight differences in the processes and methodologies of the two companies have led to minor variances for the overall market (less than 1%), although the differences may be slightly larger for specific ISBNs.
