The most comprehensive data anywhere on the Hispanic market for telecommunications, cable, broadband, and technology.
12 years of tracking and studying the U.S. Hispanic Market. Published annually since 2001, FOCUS: Latino™ was the first and is still the most comprehensive syndicated study on the rapidly evolving U.S. Latino market for media and telecommunications content, services, and technology.
FOCUS: Latino is comprised of data from two national studies. The first study is fielded in January, with a report available in May. The remaining data about alternative platform, new technology, and Internet usage comes from a study fielded in August, available in November.
With much of our data trackable for over a decade, FOCUS: Latino™ provides you with invaluable perspective on how key segments of the U.S. Hispanic market have developed over time when it comes to TV viewing and preferences, Internet and broadband use, and now, mobile and alternative platforms. Plus, data are indexed among a national sample of consumers.
Sample & Methodology
For Focus Latino, we survey 600 Hispanic heads of household (18+), as well as 350 +/- online surveys of Hispanic broadband users 15+ with Internet access at home. The telephone survey for Part I and the online survey for Part II are offered in both Spanish and English.
In addition to analyzing our data by standard demographics (age, sex, household income, household type, etc.), we also analyze Focus Latino data by personal fluency in English/Spanish (Spanish-dominant, English-dominant, or bilingual) and foreign-born vs. U.S. born.
