TransUnion is nearing a deal to buy information-services company Neustar Inc. for $3.1 billion, according to people familiar with the matter, a move that could help the consumer-credit reporting giant diversify beyond its core business and put data to new uses.

The purchase of closely held Neustar could be finalized by Monday, the people said, assuming the talks don’t fall apart at the last minute.
