Changes to our Places Data – 2016 in Review

A new year means new changes to our Global Places data. Last year, we surpassed over 100MM local business listings and points of interests in 50 countries to power our superior mobile location products. To show how frequently businesses can open or close each quarter, we analyzed the changes to that data. Globally, we’ve added 35.43MM new businesses or places and removed 13.17MM places no longer in operation.
