Back in February I wrote a post about why marketing to Hispanics makes more sense in a down economy.

Now, a study by Experian Simmons for Univision, shows Hispanics are less affected by the recession, tend to be more positive about it, shop more often and are more receptive to TV ads than the general population.

Specifically, compared to non-Hispanics:
