DO YOU REPRESENT. . . A CHURCH? | A REGIONAL AGENCY? | A NATIONAL AGENCY?

FROM US LIFESTYLES GROUP 6: ETHNIC AND URBAN DIVERSITY
41 Struggling Hispanic Households
Primarily urban and Hispanic, this segment ranks first in the percentage of individuals younger than 18 and ranks near the bottom in every age category over 35. The segment also ranks first in overall household size, first in the number of adult females with children who are not in the work force, and first in the number of adults who do not have high school diplomas. Household income and property values are below the national average.
Faith involvement is generally about the same as the national average, though belief in God is well above average. On the other hand, the number of individuals who have become less involved with their faith in the past ten years is also very high. A majority of these households believe the government should be the primary provider of human welfare services, while an ever greater majority believe that churches and religious organizations should provide more human services.
Religious affiliations highest above average are Jehovah’s Witness (ranks number two of all segments), Pentecostal (ranks number two), New Age and Mormon.
The primary concerns of this group are Neighborhood Gangs (ranks number three), Educational Objectives, Day-to-Day Financial Worries, Finding a Good Church, Teen/Child Problems and Affordable Housing.
Households in this segment rank near the bottom in contributions to religious organizations, colleges and universities, and charities.
Asked to identify programs and characteristics they would prefer in a church, these households are more likely to indicate Twelve-Step Programs, Sports/Camping, Personal or Family Counseling, Participatory Music (ranks number two) and Contemporary Music.
