Industry research/Readership Survey

The National Newspaper Association monitors, evaluates and analyzes trends affecting the community newspaper industry through annual research conducted in partnership with Susquehanna Polling and Research. NNA often creates house ads, promotions and presentation materials from its research for members to use in their communities. Highlights of NNA’s research can be found in the About community newspapers section of this website. Most recent survey results here.
