Survey sheds light on Government News readers

Early results of the Government News reader survey are in, and they’re telling us what we suspected.

Our readers are engaged, dedicated, educated, professionals working largely across the public (47 per cent) and private (18 per cent) sectors. We reach a broad readership across all levels of government, from senior executive level to those in frontline roles.

While the majority of our readers are based in NSW (43 per cent) you’re also spread around the country and outside Australia, and we’ll be sure to bear this is in mind when curating our content.

Fifty per cent of you work in local government, 37 per cent work for a state government and 14 per cent work in the Commonwealth public sector.

Most of you (87 per cent) told us you read Government News to keep up to date about government initiatives, programs and appointments, so we’ll keep it coming!

Our readers also come to Government News to get ideas about programs, projects and policies relevant to your sector; for product information; and to find news that the mainstream media isn’t running.

Thanks to the 65 per cent of you who rated Government News very good to excellent, including the 69 per cent who rated us very good to excellent for ethics, balance, independence and trustworthiness.

To everyone who offered your constructive criticism, you can be assured we’ve taken it on board.

As most of you (85 per cent) get your Government News fix via our newsletters, it’s  good time to remind you that you can get the news first by checking in on our website and following us on our social media channels on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

It’s also a good time to remind you that there’s still time to complete the survey if you haven’t already, and go in the (optional) draw for one of two boxes of six bottles of fine wine.

The survey closes at close of business on May 4.

Thanks once again for taking time to provide your feedback.
