To illustrate the gap that exists between the level of consumption of the upper class and the lower class in Mexico, some data can be cited:
The poorest 10% of the population consume 300 pesos a month in fixed telecommunications services, while the 1% consume 650 pesos a month in this type of service.
The difference is that, for the poor, said consumption represents 8.8% of their income, while, in the case of the richest, this consumption represents only 1.2% of theirs, according to a report by the Federal Institute of Telecommunications (IFT).
Hours spent on television consumption
Nielsen, a company specialized in radio and television metrics in Mexico, classifies the audience into four socioeconomic levels.
In a study carried out in 2018, it is estimated that the highest income segment spends around 4 hours and 52 minutes watching television. In contrast, the poorest households spend 5 hours and 26 minutes.
What does the upper class do?
The majority of upper-class households that have wage earners work in corporations, companies, or private businesses (41.8%), 22.7% work in the government, and 7.9% work in some independent, personal, or family business.
Finally, the upper-upper class is made up of big businessmen, some even appear on the lists of the world’s richest.
