Biennial Media Consumption Survey [1998 - 2002]

The Biennial Media Consumption Survey collects data on the public's use of, and attitudes toward, the Internet and traditional news outlets. Respondents are asked questions concerning their use of newspapers, television news, radio news, and news magazines. Of particular interest to arts and cultural policy researchers is a question that assesses how closely respondents follow news about culture and the arts.

The survey is conducted every other year for the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press (http://people-press.org) by Princeton Survey Research Associates (http://www.psra.com). Press releases and reports based on the data are available on the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press' web site.
