Research & Data

SSA takes pride in providing members with fresh research and data. SSA data studies are revolutionizing the way owner-operators and managers look at our industry.



Have you ever been told by somebody or some group, that your current facility, expansion, or new build project will generate too much traffic? Have you been told that you need twice as many parking spaces than you planned on? If so, the SSA needs your help in proving them wrong. The SSA is conducting a nation-wide Traffic Generation Study that will give us the new and updated data that you need to effectively present your case.

•    Facility information will be analyzed in aggregate (no individual store data will be published)
•    NDA’s for your data are accepted (optional)
•    The more participants, the better the study data
•    Your participation helps our industry
•    Participants get the final report first
•    Large and small operators are invited to participate
•    Study data will help the SSA with legislative efforts
