Census 2020: Be counted
There’s never been a more important time to get a full and accurate count of everyone living in the United States. Businesses and civic organizations alike rely on census data to make important decisions. We recently launched Project TrueCount, our effort to ensure an accurate count. And, to help us get the message out, we asked several Hispanic community and business leaders for their thoughts on the importance of getting counted.
la oportunidad latinx: cultural currency and the consumer journey
Latinx consumers are melding the physical and digital worlds to create personalized, culturally relevant shopping experiences on their own terms. These consumers’ paths-to-purchase, or consumer journeys, are social and circular. Purchase decisions can be frequently traced to the recommendation of a friend, family member or consumer review website. And, because Latinx consumers are so digitally connected—97% of Latinx households own a smartphone, and Latinx consumers spend over 27 weekly hours using apps and the web on smartphones—the consumer journey plays out in real-time.

NIELSEN COMPROMETIDO CON LOS PRINCIPIOS DE LA CIENCIA DE LOS DATOS, DE CARA AL CENSO 2020
En Nielsen, tenemos más de 100 años trabajando con información. Conocemos la ciencia de los datos y sabemos que incluir en el censo una nueva pregunta que no ha sido probada, carece de rigor científico; además de que tendrá un efecto negativo en la población participante.
NIELSEN REMAINS COMMITTED TO DATA SCIENCE PRINCIPLES AHEAD OF CENSUS 2020
At Nielsen, we’ve worked with data for almost 100 years. We know data science. And we know that adding an untested question to this census is bad science and will likely lead to a significant undercount of the U.S. population. In particular, we believe that young, multicultural people—a consumer segment that will be the main driver of economic growth for the next decade—are at great risk of being underrepresented.
LA UNIÓN HACE LA FUERZA: NIELSEN JOINS THE LATINX COMMUNITY TO CELEBRATE HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

DESCUBRIMIENTO DIGITAL: THE ONLINE LIVES OF LATINX CONSUMERS
Technology has fundamentally changed the Latinx consumer experience. Hispanic consumers make digital gains and advancements at a higher rate than the total market, creating behavioral differences in how they communicate, shop, consume content and mobilize for social justice. The combination of the relative youth of the Hispanic community–and its preference for culturally nuanced content that represents them–has placed them at the center of trendsetter culture.
