The source did not provide information on the age of the respondents. The data was weighted to reflect the entire country's population.
The source also made the following remarks:
1. "This is an online survey – and as such the results will underrepresent the consumption habits of people who are not online (typically older, less affluent, and with limited formal education)"
2. "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 was between one percent and three percent in most countries but as high as eight percent in the UK."
During the survey, this question was posed as follows: "You said you came across news via social media in the last week, what type of content do you tend to access this way? Please select all that apply.."
