Hispanic representation

Representation matters

The undeniable impact of U.S. Hispanics is evident in the shifting flavor of American entertainment culture. The Hispanic community now represents 19% of the U.S. population, up 23% over the past decade, outpacing the nation’s overall population growth of 7%. With a buying power of $2.7 trillion, if U.S. Latinos were a standalone economy, they would be the seventh-largest GDP in the world—ahead of Italy, Brazil, and Canada.  Additionally, more than half are age 34 and younger—an age when many are still developing their brand and content affinity.

Nielsen Diverse Intelligence Series

Nielsen’s Diverse Intelligence Series offers insights and trends that focus solely on diverse audiences’  unique media habits, demand for inclusive content and campaigns, and perceptions of today’s media landscape. The series has become an industry resource to help brands better understand and reach diverse customers. The U.S. Hispanic population is becoming more diverse and intersectional than ever and when it comes to inclusion and representation, has different expectations of content creators, media platforms, brands and advertisers.

About the Hispanic community

La union hace la fuerza: Nielsen joins the Latinx community to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

While Americans observe Hispanic Heritage Month between September. 15 and October. 15, Nielsen actively supports Hispanic causes and organizations year-round. This support is closely aligned with our values and is near-and-dear to our Latinx associates, who hail from countries around the world. For example, earlier this year at Cannes Lions, we worked with We Are All Human to release the findings of the Hispanic Sentiment Study — a comparative analysis of Hispanic attitudes from 2018 to 2023 about the resilience and progress of the Hispanic community and their relationship with brands.
