Each year, the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism analyzes the major sectors of the news industry in depth and look across those different elements of the news media to see broader trends that cannot be identified by the traditional method of looking one sector at a time. To produce the report, the organization combines data others have generated with its own reporting, and with its own data and original analysis. The goal each year is to provide for citizens, journalists, researchers and scholars a singular resource about American journalism — the record of our civic and cultural life.
