Description

This survey forms part of the research program ´Dagspresskollegiet´. The target group of this survey was the inhabitants of Jönköping. Most of the questions are replications of questions asked in previous readership studies, i.e. questions concerning reading habits, subscriptions of papers, reading interests, and background variables such as gender, age, education and party preference. The respondent also had to compare the two local papers Jönköpings Posten and Smålands Folkblad with regard to a number of qualities. A battery of questions dealt with the local paper Smålands Folkblad specifically.
