Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information:
"The period ‘Before COVID-19’ represents the period from September 11, 2019, to March 14, 2020, while the period ‘During COVID-19’ represents the period from March 15, 2020 to May 22, 2020.
This means that changes in media consumption behaviour are not necessarily directly caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. Some changes in media consumption behaviour may be related to underlying trends, e.g. traditional TV viewing decreasing and podcast listening increasing."

* Respondents across seven countries: the U.S., the UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland
