The U.S. Hispanic Market
September 2001

This completely new Packaged Facts report provides a timely analysis of the consumer market created by the 35.3 million Hispanics living in the United States, who now make up the largest minority population segment in the country. The report begins by using the latest available data from Census 2000 and a wide variety of other sources to construct an in-depth demographic profile of the Hispanic population. Variables analyzed include population distribution, income levels, family structure, employment patterns, educational achievement, and social values. Factors affecting the growth of the U.S. Hispanic market, such as immigration patterns and birth rates, are assessed, and estimates of market size and growth are provided. The report then analyzes the consumer behavior of Hispanics, including their shopping behavior and buying patterns.

Between 1990 and 2000 the Hispanic population grew more than four times as fast as the population as a whole (57.9% vs. 13.2%).
