There are fascinating differences between emerging economies and developed ones in how people consume news – and for that matter the role news plays in their lives. Understanding these differences will be critical to news organisations in a world where news has become global, and the biggest growth is coming from emerging economies. In quite possibly the biggest such survey of its kind, looking purely at news consumption behaviour, we spoke to over 12,000 people from 10 different countries.
