The volumes in the Who’s Buying Series are based on the current edition of Household Spending: Who Spends How Much on What and give researchers even more detail about how much Americans spend by the demographics that count—age, income, household type, race and Hispanic origin, region of residence, and education. To round out the spending picture, researchers also get “who are the best customers” analyses of the data.
Four volumes that examine who has money and what they do with it. American Incomes explores and explains the economic status of Americans. Household Spending provides a comprehensive analysis of the nation’s economic ups and downs with its analysis of spending trends at the individual household level. And Best Customers reveals who the best and biggest customers are for hundreds of individual products and services.
The Who We Are series provides a comprehensive look at the characteristics of America’s three major minorities: Asians, blacks, and Hispanics. In addition to detailed estimates of their numbers nationally and by state and metropolitan area, the three volumes in the Who We Are series include the latest socioeconomic data on each population. It has detailed spending data for households and the latest data on household wealth. Results from the American Time Use Survey are also presented, profiling time use and comparing it to the averages.
Each Who We Are series is divided into ten chapters arranged alphabetically: Attitudes, Education, Health, Housing, Income, Labor Force, Living Arrangements, Population, Spending, Time Use, and Wealth (there are no wealth data for Asians). Descriptive text and charts accompany most of the tables, highlighting the important trends.
Each of the four volumes in the American Generations Series provides an in-depth look at the demographic and lifestyle data most important for researchers who want to understand how each generation is changing and what to expect from them in the future.
