Since the project began in 2001, Piper Jaffray has surveyed more than 140,000 teens and collected over 37 million data points on teen spending in fashion, beauty and personal care, digital media, food, gaming and entertainment.

“While total spending among the teen demographic appears to be down slightly versus last year, we are encouraged that the upper-income teenagers in our survey are indicating more optimism and positive spending trends. This increase in spending among upper-income teens seems to be largely broad-based across fashion and beauty,” said Neely Tamminga, Piper Jaffray senior research analyst.
