How people get local news and information in different communities, September 26, 2012

  • “The percentage of Americans who indicate they enjoy keeping up with the news ‘a lot’ ranges from 53% to 60% across the four community types, and similar percentages follow international news closely regardless of what is happening (ranging from 54% to 58%). More residents in all community types follow local news this closely, with percentages ranging from 68% in large cities to 73% in rural areas. Interest in national news is highest among suburban residents, with three quarters (74%) following closely regardless of what is going on, compared with two-thirds (67%) of residents of other types of communities.”
