The source did not provide information on the age of the respondents.
The source also made the following remarks:
1. "Our survey was conducted online and as such the results will under-represent the consumption habits of people who are not online (typically older, less affluent, and with limited formal education)."
2. "As this survey deals with news consumption, we filtered out anyone who said that they had not consumed any news in the past month, in order to ensure that irrelevant responses didn’t adversely affect data quality. This category averaged 3.5% but was as high as 13% in Canada."
3. "The data were weighted to targets based on census/industry accepted data, such as age, gender and region, to represent the total population of each country. The sample is reflective of the population that has access to the internet."
