News consumption in the UK 1 February 2017

Research into news consumption across television, radio, print and online.

Note: Ofcom is currently in the process of reviewing the News Survey in order to ensure that it remains fit for purpose. This means that there may be differences to the next survey including different questions and a different methodology.

Note: Since publication of these tables in February 2017, further analysis of this data has shown that a slightly modified definition of "internet user" can provide more reliable data, so we have recalculated the internet user base. Updated tables showing this recalculation can be found at our news consumption research page.

Post volumes and revenues 2016 3 August 2017

Data showing total revenues and volumes for the UK addressed letter market in FY2016-17.

From FY 2017-18 we propose changing the basis on which annual letters volumes and revenues is collected, impacting the statistics we will publish relating to 2017-18 revenues and volumes. This proposal would mean that we no longer collect volumes and revenues from postal operators whose combined annual access letters and end-to end letter volumes is less than two million items a year. We consider that this change will remove regulatory burdens from the smallest operators while having no material impact on the quality of data we collect or our ability to monitor the market. For further information or to comment on our proposed change please see the notice on our website, or email by 6 March 2017
