Teens Continue to Drive Spending

Spending on and by teenagers will reach $208.7 billion in 2011, up from $189.7 billion in 2006, according to Packaged Facts’ “The Teens Market in the US” report. The spending increase is expected despite an estimated 3% decline in the 12-to-17-year-old population by 2011.

Lynne’s comment: “Teens continue to drive spending despite the state of the economy, yet they have only a casual relationship with what it means to work for a living.”
