Hispanics account for almost half of annual U.S. population growth, largely through U.S. births rather than immigration (25.8% of kids aged 9 and under are Hispanic). Totaling 57.5 million people, Hispanics are 17.8% of the U.S. population and growing.
That’s some of the key information in Ad Age’s fourteenth-annual Hispanic Fact Pack, distributed with the Aug. 21 issue of the print magazine. It includes data about marketers, ad spending, demographic change and how Hispanics use digital media. Rankings in the 32-page 2017 guide include the top 50 Hispanic advertisers, the 50 largest U.S. Hispanic ad agencies and the 15 biggest Hispanic media agencies. And a creative roundup highlights the most-awarded campaigns of the year.
A further selection: Hispanic major-media spending edged up 1.2% to $9.6 billion in 2016, but the only category that grew significantly was digital, estimated in Ad Age’s Hispanic Fact Pack to be up 16.9% to $2 billion. TV spending — network, spot and cable– was down slightly to $6 billion in 2016 from $6.2 billion the previous year.
