Newspapers remain primary souce for information according to survey

A telephone survey of 1,005 interviews was conducted in 2005 with Missourian residents by the Center for Advanced Social Research (CASR) of Missouri's School of Journalism on behalf of University of Missouri Extension.

Fifty-six percent of the people surveyed say they usually rely on newspapers as their primary source of information about what happens in their communities. Twenty-one percent use television and six percent listen to the radio as their primary source.

Three-fourths (76 percent) of the residents surveyed said they had access to the Internet.

For more information about the survey, contact Kenneth Fleming, director of CASR, at (573) 882-3396.
