A Survey of Adult Reading Habits.
Murphy, Kathleen
A questionnaire was completed by 110 individuals between the ages of 18 and 65 in a study conducted to determine the primary reason why adults read. The results showed that informational reading was the main purpose for adult reading, but did not indicate a relationship between purpose for reading and socioeconomic status and educational level. The data also indicated that differences existed between the sections of newspapers read frequently by males and females, that differences existed in the types of magazines read by males and females, and that fiction books were the type of books read most frequently. (A copy of the questionnaire and tables of findings are included.) (MKM)
