About the research
The research identified the sources of political and public affairs information in Hungary, incl. the role of Facebook and the assessment of the media situation. The survey was conducted by the Medián Public Opinion and Market Research Institute on a commission by Mérték Media Monitor. The data were collected by personal interviews on a national sample of 1,200 respondents.
The survey replicated in part the questions asked in earlier surveys in 2014-15 and in 2016, this is why the presentation of the findings is focused on the changes.
The project was supported by Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.
