Target Rating Points
In marketing, Target Rating Points are a subdivision of the Gross Rating Points. TRP measures the percentage of viewers or listeners or readers that are considered to be interested or “in the market” for a particular good or service. In other words, a Gross Rating point would be the total number of viewers of an advertisement while the Target Rating Point would be the viewers that would actually take interest and consider a purchase of the product being advertised.

Another example would be to imagine 100 home each with one TV. Each home would represent 1% of the total homes therefore each home would represent a 1 rating each time the television commercial air when the television in that home is on. If the advertisement aired a total of five times each home could possibly count as five Gross Rating points. Target rating points now, are a function of the gross rating point and can be represented as a percentage of the GRP. Suppose an advertiser is selling an item aimed toward men between 50 and 60 years of age. Demographics may show for example that of our 100 homes 50...
