Median household income (U.S. dollars)
Hispanic women shop less frequently than other multicultural women and select stores for their convenience rather than price. They are more likely to shop with family members and are least likely to shop alone. They enjoy shopping with children much more than other women.
Roughly half (51%) of U.S. Hispanic households are involved in hobbies and crafts, spending an estimated $1.9 billion annually. The most frequent activities are Art/Drawing and Floral Arranging.
More than a quarter of Hispanics (27%) identify themselves as "distance buyers" who purchase items from catalogs, telemarketing calls and online.

Hispanic Consumer Trends
Language is one of the most obvious examples of this phenomenon. Spanish is likely to remain the language of preference among U.S. Latinos. In fact, Univision is now the #5 network in the United States, behind ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox. When asked about advertising effectiveness, 38% of Hispanics surveyed found English language ads less effective than Spanish ads in terms of recall and 70% less effective than Spanish ads in terms of persuasion. Many younger and acculturated Latinos mix languages into a form of "Spanglish," in which they speak English peppered with Spanish words. But when it comes to selling, 56% of Latino adults respond best to advertising when it is presented in Spanish.

Hispanic households tend to be younger on average than the U.S. population at large. Of the more than 10 million Hispanic households, 38 percent are currently headed by someone under 35, and an additional 25 percent are led by someone between the ages of 35 and 44 (the national average for homes with heads under 35 is 23 percent.) By 2010, the under-45 Hispanic market will increase to 8 million households, and its purchasing power will leap from the current level of less than $295 billion to $397 billion. In other words, $3 out of every $5 flowing to Hispanic households in 2010 will be in the hands of this younger-than-average segment.
