A new ThinkNow Research Hispanic Omnibus survey found that 51.0% of all respondents expected their personal finances would improve in 2013 compared to 2013. Only 9.2% expect their personal finances will be worse this year. This optimism was evenly split between male and female Hispanics.

Young Hispanic adults, ages 18-34, were the most optimistic -- 61% of respondents in this age group expect improvement. Older Hispanics, age 55 and older, were the most pessimistic, with 19.7% fear their situation would worsen.

Large kitchen appliances: 13.4% of respondents said they purchased a major kitchen appliance in 2012, with 22.0% planning to buy one in 2013.
