New Packaged Facts Research of Latino Consumers Trends in U.S.

15 Feb 2012 • by Natalie Aster

Marketers seeking to target Upscale Latinos need to take into account an ongoing shift in the residential patterns of higher-income Latinos. A November 2011 report published by Brown University (“Growth in the Residential Segregation of Families by Income, 1970-2009”) found that middle-class Latino families, along with middle-class African American families, were more likely than their non-Hispanic white counterparts to live in neighborhoods apart from lower-income families. As noted by the study’s authors, “One possible explanation for the growth, however, is the lenient mortgage lending practices that were increasingly common in the early part of the 2000s. These practices provided many moderate-income families with increased access to homeownership, particularly in middle- and upper-income neighborhoods, and so increased the residential distance between low- and middle-income families.”

According to the report “Upscale Latino Consumers in the U.S.” by Packaged Facts, highlighting the opportunities generated by the 8.2 million Latino adults living in households with an income of $75,000 or more, Packaged Facts' «Upscale Latino Consumers in the U.S.» calls for a shift in strategic thinking about the Hispanic market.
