But you probably already knew that, if you’ve been attending club shows or concerts around Nippertown in recent months.
Edison Research interviewed more 15,000 young people (ages 12-24) nationwide in September. Sponsored by RadioInfo.com, the survey focused on radio listening habits, but there were also plenty eye-opening figures on various other topics as well:
CONCERT ATTENDANCE: In a similar survey taken in 2000, 24 percent of respondents said that they attended three or more concerts a year. In the new survey, that figure dropped to only 12 percent. In fact, 64 percent of those surveyed did not attend a single concert in the past year.
PHYSICAL & DIGITAL ALBUM SALES: The combined physical CD and digital download album purchases has dropped more than 50 percent since 2000 – from 785 million to 380 million in 2009.
NEWSPAPER READERSHIP: And here are the figures in response to the question, “How often do you read a printed newspaper?”:
Almost every day – 4 percent
Regularly, but not daily – 10 percent
Sometimes – 28 percent
Almost never – 58 percent
