Shopping Habits of U.S. Hispanic Adults Differ From the Average U.S. Adult

New study from Experian Consumer Research

New York, N.Y., November 6, 2008 — Today’s U.S. consumer population is very diverse, making it more important to be aware of group distinctions and the benefits of further streamlining your company’s marketing efforts to appeal to your target consumer groups.

One key group is the U.S. Hispanic population, which has been growing steadily over the years and has become an important consumer population. Experian Consumer Research has been surveying the U.S. Hispanic population since 2003 and has found in a recent trend analysis that these consumers differ from the average U.S. adult shopper in their buying behaviors and preferences. The analysis also identified other distinctive differences, making the U.S. Hispanic population unique to the entire U.S. consumer population.

Since finance is currently a hot topic in the media, Experian Consumer Research also looked at how Hispanics feel about their finances and how these feelings and financial-related behaviors have changed over time.
