1* How often do you buy a print version of your local
newspaper – rarely or never, once a week or less, several times a week, or
every day or nearly every day?
2* Have you ever subscribed to a print newspaper and had it delivered to your home or office?
3* (Answered by 686 who subscribe to a newspaper and have it delivered to their home or office) In the last five years, have you cancelled a print newspaper subscription because you can get that news elsewhere?
4* Which do you prefer—reading a printed version of the newspaper or reading an online version of the newspaper?
5* Where do you go most often to get your news – print newspapers, TV, radio, Internet news sites or social media?
6* If many newspapers go out of business, how confident are you that online and other news sources will make up the difference and report on things that people want to know about?
