State Farm Insurance Has Its Eye on the 2010 World Cup

New York” With the 2010 U.S. Census around the corner, many advertisers are looking to see what that survey says about the growth in Hispanic demographics.

One of those advertisers is State Farm Insurance, the nation's largest insurance provider and a huge television advertiser. State Farm spends approximately $60 million a year in Hispanic media, according to Nielsen Media Research.
