The black segment is estimated to increase by 15 to 20 percent. Ethnic groups within the cultural mainstream that have unique  values and attitudes are referred to as subcultures or microcultures and are based upon race and nationality. Differences in ethnic groups result in considerable  variations in consumer buyer behavior. It is not only important to understand these variations but to look for links that can offer an opportunity for a broader target  marketplace. In the past, garlic was the most exotic condiment that was sold in supermarkets. Now, there are over thirty varieties of salsa—the Mexican condiment that has  outsold ketchup since the early 1990s. Multiculturalism has become a concrete reality. Census data reveal that nearly 25 percent of the U. S. population identifies itself  as a segment other than white alone. There is increasing emphasis on ethnic pride that will cause marketers to reconsider their marketing strategies. 2   THE USE OF DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION  Geographic location has long been considered a basis for market segmentation studies. It was not until the last decade of the twentieth century that marketers realized  the importance of regional and local lifestyle market segmentation strategies. Studies indicated that psychographic segments that are developed for markets in one  geographic location are generalizable to markets in other geographic locations and that long­distance mobility was a life­event indicator, rather than a lifestyle indicator. three  Regional marketing and identifying changes in local lifestyles have become more important. For example, Ben & Jerry’s, an ice cream producer, directed its earlier  efforts to a market segment in New England concerned with the environment. Successful in New England, the company used this same appeal in other areas. Campbell Soup sells a spicier nacho­flavored cheese soup in California and Texas in order to accommodate subcultural differences. Campbell Soup adjusts its  product mix to serve different target markets in diverse geographical locations. It is difficult to understand why more vitamins are purchased in Denver and more shoe  polish in Indianapolis but the task of marketers is to develop regional and lifestyle market segmentation strategies based on these local tastes. Population, its distribution and composition, is not growing evenly throughout the United States. Evidence from the census data indicates that population shifts to the  Sun Belt states have been much greater than expected. The growth of the Sun Belt areas means that  Page 8 special products need to be developed for warm weather areas that reflect lifestyles due to climate because consumers will spend more time outdoors than those in the  eastern and midwestern states. There is a continuing increase in the number of senior citizens. Levi Strauss is placing more emphasis on marketing jeans for the mature figure and General Mills and  Kellogg are developing products targeted to a senior segment concerned with lowering their cholesterol.
