Research technique

Gathering of the project data is performed within two blocks:

1. Survey block.
2. Electronic measurement block. 

In the survey block, we measure over 200 thematic channels. The data are gathered by means of telephone surveys and online questioning combination. Telephone surveys collect information about the amount and structure of the multi-channel environment in the whole. By means of online questioning, we measure audience parameters for each thematic channel separately.

Results of electronic measurements are supplemented by the survey block results. Electronic measurements are performed with the help of a special device peoplemeter. At the moment, within the block of peoplemeter measurements there are 117 of 200 thematic channels, included in the questioning block of the project.
