From National Newspaper Association, January 2018
A nationwide newspaper readership survey, commissioned by National Newspaper Association, was conducted by Susquehanna Polling and Research of Harrisburg, PA, in early 2017. The company completed telephone surveys with 1,000 households across the country.
