Canada’s “Country Report” to the Worlds of Journalism Study

Our country report on basic Canadian data is here:

– Rollwagen, Heather, Ivor Shapiro, Geneviève Bonin, Lindsay Fitzgerald, and Lauriane Tremblay: “Journalists in Canada: Country Report.” Worlds of Journalism Study. 11 October, 2016.

Data from the completed Worlds of Journalism Study phases is now available to all researchers for secondary analysis.

All the responses of more than 27,500 journalists in 67 countries (including Canada) to a common questionnaire, administered under a common methodological framework, are now available in an open-source data.

The questionnaire used from 2012 to 2016 elicited views of journalists on several issues journalists and news organizations face today, such as journalism’s place in society, ethics, autonomy and influences on newsmaking, journalistic trust in public institutions, and the transformation of journalism in the broadest sense.

As a service to the wider academic community and individuals concerned with the state of journalism around the globe, the global study makes several resources available detailed documentation of the study’s conceptual background and methodological procedures and key results of the study in the form of overview tables that summarize journalists’ responses to selected questions and in the form of standardized country reports.

As well, the datasets from the completed two waves of the study (WJS1 and WJS2) may be downloaded here and freely used for any non-commercial purpose.
