Among the topics covered in the reports reviewed are the following: (1) readership studies, (2) using community characteristics to predict newspaper circulation, (3) the daily news habits of the American public, (4) newspapers and television, (5) precision journalism, (6) personal needs and media use, (7) comic strips, (8) accuracy in news reporting, (9) using census data, and (10) reader interest in business, sports, and foreign news.
