Employment trends in newspaper publishing and other media, 1990–2016

June 02, 2016

Few industries have been affected by the digital or information age as much as newspapers and other traditional publishing industries (books, magazines, etc.). In June 1990, there were nearly 458,000 people employed in the newspaper publishing industry; by March 2016, that figure had fallen to about 183,000, a decline of almost 60 percent. Over the same period, employment in Internet publishing and broadcasting rose from about 30,000 to nearly 198,000.

Two other industries similarly affected by the digital age and the advent of the Internet are radio broadcasting, where employment declined from January 1990 to March 2016 by about 27 percent, and motion picture and video production, where employment rose from about 92,000 to 239,000 over the same period, an increase of nearly 162 percent.

These data are from the Current Employment Statistics program. Data for the most recent month are preliminary. All data shown are seasonally adjusted.
