Amid the onslaught of an estimated $11 billion in political spending for this year’s U.S. Presidential Election, it’s hard to imagine any voter group being left out. But according to the 2020 Asian American Voter Survey, half of Asian voters reported they were not contacted by either major party in the ramp up to Election Day. Turnout among Asian American voters lagged their multicultural counterparts in previous cycles, but this year, many are excited about getting off the sidelines and involved in the process.

There are many misconceptions and outdated perceptions about today’s Latinx population in the world of Hispanic Marketing.  So Casanova//McCann conducted a proprietary, quantitative study to get to the heart of the truth.  Here’s a teaser of some of the interesting insights the data uncovered.

A generation, according Howe & Strauss, is defined by a life cycle—or roughly 20 years—and greatly influence a nation’s mood. Thrust between a pandemic, racial justice movements and an election, the United States is in the middle of a social and demographic transformation, making 2020 a critical turning point year. But that is not all...2020 marks the  rst time any American generation is a multicultural majority. Today, it is the 0 to 17 segment. By 2028, it will be the under 35 segment, and by 2033, everyone under the age of 50 will be a multicultural majority.

As the pandemic forces consumers to spend more time online, brands must adopt a digital, data-driven approach

There is no doubt that 2020 will be the most important year of my life. Between the novel coronavirus, the U.S. Census, social justice and the presidential election, this year has made all of us, collectively, rethink what’s important for our families and in our communities. Perhaps for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color), 2020 has highlighted the importance of unity, empathy and community because, as diverse groups, we have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic, racism and divisive politics.  By Stacie M. de Armas, SVP of Diverse Consumer Insights and Initiatives, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Practice, Nielsen

ThinkNow has been awarded a Bronze 2020 ARF David Ogilvy Award in the Multicultural category for research conducted for the "No One Gets A Diploma Alone" campaign with NGL Collective for the Ad Council.

The next phase of the data game is upon us. Winning will require a new playbook.

A study on how the pandemic is affecting the world’s leading brands.

In the last few days, egta, the European Association of TV and Radio Sales Houses, published a comprehensive report into advances in hybrid television audience measurement. I don’t pretend to have read it – it runs to 104 pages and is really a source document outlining the options available – but fortunately I know a man who has assured me it is both comprehensive and useful.  By Brian Jacobs / The Cog

Why data is the lifeblood of the advertising ecosystem in 2020

The United States is more racially and ethnically diverse today than it ever has been, and it is projected to be even more diverse in the coming decades. In 2019, Americans who identify as a race or ethnicity other than non-Hispanic White made up 40% of the country’s population, and their combined share is predicted to increase to over 50% by 2044, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

A much more discerning grocery shopper is emerging in the wake of initial widespread panic-buying sparked by COVID-19 this past spring that led consumers to disregard prices and stock up on products and ingredients required to prepare the entirety of their family meals at home. Retailers and their trading partners responded as rapidly as possible to the sudden spikes in demand by pulling back on promotional efforts and focusing on their supply chains to keep up, which led to higher prices on 64% of more than 500 grocery store categories.

Every night, as 5 full time virtual students/workers get ready to take their car out for a spin, I think the auto industry is really missing the growth of the Hispanic consumer.  I did say 5 adults… 4 cars… one house… and during COVID our cars are our escape strategy.  By Ana Ceppi

Once upon a time, TV was linear, with a handful of channels, and the standard unit of measurement was the gross rating point (GRP), which dictated advertising costs and set CPMs. The GRP, the only measurement available, reported on age and gender demographic impressions culled from panels. Brands advertising on television relied on it to place their broadcasting spend accordingly.

Debates over who is Hispanic and who is not have fueled conversations about identity among Americans who trace their heritage to Latin America or Spain. The question surfaced during U.S. presidential debates and the confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. More recently, it bubbled up after a singer from Spain won the “Best Latin” award at the 2019 Video Music Awards.
