Publishing in 2011: the daily press under threat

Catherine Souquet, division Services, Insee

The advent of digital technology and the development of free newspapers radically transformed the world of publishing. The daily press was the first victim. Despite restructuring, a new economic model has not really been achieved. For periodicals and books, the situation is much better in terms of profitability. However, they also face the challenge of negotiating a positive changeover to digital. (Sentences marked by a * and Figure 4 were modified on 12 March 2014).
