Latino consumers are a bright spot in an otherwise dreary picture for issuers of credit cards.  According to Experian Simmons National Consumer Study (NCS) data, between 2004 and 2011 the total number of American consumers with credit cards dropped 5%, while the number of non-Latinos with credit cards fell 7%.  During this same period, however, the number of Latino cardholders increased 23%.  Thus, the vibrant growth in the number of Latino cardholders helped arrest what would have been an even more significant decline in the total number of American consumers owning credit cards. 

Packaged Facts Consumer Payments in the U.S.: The Latino Market illustrates the importance of Latinos to the debit and prepaid card worlds as well.  Between 2004 and 2011 the number of Latinos with debit/ATM cards more than doubled (115%), while the number of non-Latinos with debit/ATM cards increased only 51%.  Thus the report demonstrates the increasingly crucial role played by Latinos in all aspects of the consumer payments market.

Overview of the Report

The report begins with an analysis of the top trends driving the Latino consumer payments market and shows how Latinos have sparked growth within the credit and debit card industries.  It continues with an overview of Latino consumer payment patterns that includes analyses of how Latinos pay their bills and pay for purchases.  The report continues with a chapter examining trends in Latino consumer spending patterns.  The next chapter explores the use of credit cards by Latinos and includes an overview of the demographic characteristics of Latino cardholders by type of credit card as well as a review of the personal financial management attitudes of Latinos with credit cards.  The following chapter investigates the use of debit cards and prepaid (not gift) cards by Latinos.  The final chapter of the report analyzes the impact of media acculturation on Latino consumer payment practices and highlights regional differences in the Latino consumer payments market.

Scope of the Market

This Packaged Facts report focuses on ownership and use by Latinos of credit cards, debit/ATM cards and prepaid debit (not gift) cards and their payment patterns for bills and purchases.

Methodology

The principal source of primary data is the Winter 2012 Experian Simmons NCS, which was fielded between February 2011 and March 2012.  Trend data contained in the report is constructed from the Fall 2004 through Fall 2011 Experian Simmons National Consumer Studies.  These studies were fielded during the 12-month period ending in December of each year.

Experian Simmons conducts telephone and booklet-based surveys of a large and random sample of consumers who in aggregate represent a statistically accurate cross-section of the U.S. population.  Each Experian Simmons NCS survey release involves a sample of approximately 25,000 respondents.

The report is also based upon data collected from a wide range of industry sources, including company websites, trade publications, business newspapers and magazines, consumer blogs and other releases from public companies.
