American Hispanics by the Numbers
As of 2013 Latino buying power stands at an impressive $1.2 trillion, with women driving the purchases. Right now, with 53 million Latinos in the U.S., one in six Americans is Latino. In three short decades, it will be closer to one in three. These are all facts.
But where else do we get our facts? The media? Television shows? These are all biased mediums that don't really showcase the passion and statistics. This is where a forthcoming book comes into play...Latino Stats: American Hispanics by the Numbers.
I'm very interested in what kind of stats and numbers comes from this guidebook. Remember that time Arizona attempted to ban Mexican-American Studies? Yeah, I hope one day this guidebook written by a mother, daughter duo, makes it to those shelves first.
The book will be available January 2015.
