Domestic news read most

READERS of daily papers in Slovakia are most interested in articles relating to domestic policy, a new survey reveals.

The survey, called "Čítanie 2004" (Reading 2004), was conducted by the Literacy Information Centre and Institute for Culture Research NOC, using a sample of 1,500 respondents, according to the daily SME.
28.8 percent of readers favour reading articles relating to domestic affairs. In contrast, only one percent of readers favour articles on foreign policy.

This represents a year-on-year jump of 1.3 percent for domestic issues while foreign policy interest has halved and is last in the list of readers’ interest.

The society pages came second, with 17.9 percent of people citing this as their favourite section, up by 1.3 percent on last year. Sport was third on the list, with 14.5 percent of respondents citing this as the section they preferred.

The fourth favourite section amongst Slovak readers was world news, with 13.3 percent of readers, then economics with 9.3 percent, culture with 4.7 percent and the crime pages at 4.3 percent.
