Hello,

I have a general question about market sizing cases. If we need to estimate, for example, the number of phones, or fire hydrants in the US, how can we tackle the commercial building part? How can we estimate number of offices, or number of schools, hotels etc?

Hi,

By splitting the city into the # of blocks and trying to estimate the average number of (Fire hydrants, etc) per one block

Another way - calculate separately the number of leaving buildings from the population and then assuming x commercial buildings per y living.

Thanks for your answer. I would use the # of block approach if the question asked in a specific city, but what about US?
