US-born Hispanics estimated to make up 65% of 18-29s by 2015 Tr3s: MTV, Música y Más presents an in depth research study on the rapid rise and distinctive behaviors of the new Hispanic Millennial generation
Miami, FL October 17th 2011 – Tr3s: MTV, Música y Más, the bilingual/bicultural network for Latinos in the U.S., unveils a new comprehensive research study coined Death of the Hispanic Adult Demo as We Know It, as part of the brand’s mission to continue providing insight on the rapidly growing Hispanic Millennial generation. Since 2007, Tr3s has been leading the market’s knowledge bank on this segment, surveying nearly 10,000 Latinos 14-34 to date. The latest study reveals the implications of US-born Hispanics now dominating the 18-29 adult demographic, which are estimated to make up 65% of this demo by 2015, revolutionizing the Hispanic adult demo as we know it. Key findings were presented by Nancy Tellet, SVP of Research for Tr3s at the 2011 AHAA conference in Miami. "This research helps us understand the massive changes taking place within the Hispanic adult segments, especially 18-34s, as US-born Hispanic Millennials begin to dominate the 18-29 segment,” said Nancy Tellet, SVP of Research for Viacom International Media Networks. “We need to develop strategies that consider this demo, to better serve the Hispanic market and deliver results." METHODOLOGY The Death of the Hispanic Adult Demo as We Know It study reflects a comprehensive, hybrid approach to the methodology that includes traditional, non-traditional and social media techniques. Resources include national online surveys, texting and Facebook interaction, as well as local focus groups and in-home studies in Los Angeles, New York and Houston.

And they anticipate doing the same with their children (although maybe a little less strict).  Hispanic Millennials are living at home even longer: Large majorities of 2nd generation Hispanic Millennials live at home.

They don‟t want to be remembered as the “person who dances on tables”. but their struggles are nowhere near the struggles their parents had to go through and they made it through just fine.

They feel that technology is their “Millennial turf” and TRY to control and dole out technology to family members by keeping it to the basics such as texting although they admit they often do not succeed.
