Analysis: Numbers

| No Comments

For this analysis, I used this article from USA Today about how 5 million U.S. households are getting rid of their TVs. The story uses numbers to describe the number of households that have gotten rid of their TVs and the number that have added cable subscriptions, the percent of households that still have TVS, and the difference between the number of households that have TVs today compared to in 2007.

The numbers in this article are spread across the story, and are broken up with quotes from TV execs and viewers, so they don't seem overwhelming. The reporter used math to combine monthly fees from Netflix and Amazon, and probably to calculate the percent of households in the U.S. that have TVs. All of the statistics in this story come from a Nielsen study.
