How Well Are You Reaching Bicultural Hispanics?
A new term is gaining popularity – bicultural Hispanics – to represent a large swath of the U.S. population:
– Typically they’re U.S. born, and bilingual or English-preferred. Many don’t even speak Spanish.
– They’re under age 45 (average age of 27).
– They’re active in both mainstream and Latino culture.
– They have very different social attitudes than their immigrant predecessors.
Depending on your exact definition, bicultural Hispanics account for 26 to 31 million U.S. Hispanics, approximately 50% to 60% of the U.S. Hispanic market. They are also significant group representing more than 20% of U.S. population growth and 45% of Hispanic population growth. (Data source: 9/5/13, Engage Hispanics)
