Ten years ago, wide-ranging LDC industry titans detected the need for more fact-based data on the emergence of the New Mainstream Economy — powered by U.S. Latino consumers, entrepreneurs, and workers making an outsized contribution to the nation’s economic growth. So, the LDC did something that had never been done before: invest in evidence-based economic research to elevate the national dialogue and maximize results in all industries.  

Today, the LDC/Latino Data Collaborative has become the foundation of any conversation about U.S. Latinos as economic catalyzers and their importance as the fastest growing cohort in the nation.

To date, the LDC has developed more than forty-eight original reports and research pieces that highlight the economic impact of U.S. Latinos across all industries and levels. To this end, we have partnered with some of the most reputable academic and think tank leaders such as Stanford, UCLA, Columbia University, University of Notre Dame, Accenture, Boston Consulting Group, Bain & Company, Nielsen, NERA, Hill & Knowlton, to name a few. Our research leads to new ideas on stimulating the economy, influences the way significant corporations engage with U.S. Latinos, and ultimately, provides the foundation for a fact-based narrative of U.S. Latinos, which empowers planning and resource allocation at all levels.
