Esta interesante infografía que encontré en behance.net nos habla un poco de los hábitos de consumo que las personas en México, y me atrevo a decir buena parte de latinoamérica también, tienen.
Ya vienen las fiestas de navidad y fin de año, veamos en qué gastan los mexicanos en navidad:
How Mexicans Spend Their Money During The Holidays
We all tend to go a little bit out of our budget during this time of the year, and Mexico is not the exception, let’s see what are some of the spending habits Mexicans, and I dare to say most of latin americans, have for these holidays.
4% of annual income is spent on christmas gifts this includes:
- Christmas dinner
- Santa Claus
- New Year’s dinner
- Three wise men celebrations
- Drinks and dinners throughout all december
However, specialists advise to spend only 1.5% of the annual income.
90% of employees state that their incomes are not enough to make all the Christmas shopping even considering bonuses.
One of the industries that benefits the most during these holidays is clothing and fashion, reporting at least $4 to $5 thousand millons aproximately, being december the month with a higher activity rate.
15% of Mexicans that decide to spend money will do it through a banking or business loan.
Technology is another aspect that has increased in spendings and that is not exclusive of men as it used to be, wome between the ages of 16 – 44 years show their interest and decide to spend money on videogame consoles and communication, whether’s for a gift or for themselves.
Those who decide to shop out of the country come to spend up to $536 USD (average) on christmas shoppings.
There’s a tendency called SHARING, which propones the following:
- Before you buy, think, analyze and ask yourself if you really need it.
- Try other options like: Renting, Loan (objects, not money), Exchange, Build.
These are some of the habits that some people in Mexico and latin america have during this time of the year.
How about you? How do you spend your money or how do people in your country spend their money.
