Print vs. online newspapers

As in other media types, the traditional way of newspaper reading is by and by replaced by the digital medium. While more than half of the people in Denmark read print newspapers in 2010, the share amounted to only 38 percent in 2017. By contrast, 84 percent of individuals stated to use the online version that year.
