Here's Looking at You
BY Stephen Talbot
The results are in from our first-ever FRONTLINE/World survey, and we thought you might like to hear about yourselves.
* 56 percent of those who responded to our survey are female
* 45 percent are aged 35 to 54; and 29 percent are 25 to 34
* 33 percent live in the Western United States
* 18 percent are educators (the largest single job category)
So, a "typical" FRONTLINE/World viewer would be a 35- to 54-year-old woman living in the West who works as a teacher.
Of course, this is a skewed portrait since it really reflects those who bothered to reply to the survey in our last email newsletter. But as a reflection of our most loyal audience -- those of you who watch our TV episodes regularly, visit our Web site at least once a week, and subscribe to our newsletter -- this is not a bad snapshot.
