Abstract

Testing the general hypothesis that information gain is not uniform among respondents who learn of major news events, level of knowledge was found to be associated with organismic indicators such as age and sex and sociocultural indicators such as occupation and residential area. The bases for these associations were found in several information seeking behaviors of respondents lowest on information gain.
