Television are still occupied as a primary source of information. Television is used by 70 percent of respondents, down from a previous 74 percent.
The young people seem to be a significant contributor to the popularity of the Internet. 59 percent of young people under the age of 29 years use the internet as a source of news. Meanwhile, only 28 percent who use newspapers.
