From Italians to Fins

From Italians to Fins: Youth Stats in the EU

(CN) - Italian men stay at home until they are in their 30s while the Fins leave home as soon as possible, in their early 20s, according to a new report on European youth released by the EU's statistical agency. Young people in Iceland go most often to live events while the Germans are the most avid moviegoers.

Seventy-seven percent of Europeans aged 16 to 29 went to the movies in the prior year, reports a study from 2006. But only 37 percent of those over 30 had gone to the movies.

Germany had the highest proportion of young going to the movies, at 85 percent. Bulgaria had the lowest movie turnout, at 38 percent.

Fifty-four percent of 16-29 year-old Europeans went to a live event, like a play or concert, in the prior year. Iceland had the highest proportion, at 83 percent. Malta had the lowest, at 29 percent.

Forty percent of Europeans older than 30 went to a live event during the prior year.

Forty-nine percent of Europeans between the ages of 16 and 29 went to some kind of museum or art gallery. Finland went the most often at 63 percent. Those in Malta went the least often, at 14 percent.

Almost 40 percent of youth workers had a temporary work contract in 2008, with this number falling to less than 10 percent for the 30 through 54 age group.

Across Europe, women leave the house before men, but the driving difference is nationality. The Finnish leave their homes the earliest, with men leaving at the age of 23, on average, and women leaving when they are 22, on average.

Youth in Slovenia and Slovakia leave home the latest, with men leaving at the age of 31, on average and women leaving when they are 29.

The death of Newspapers

(CN) - The decline of American newspapers apparent over the last decade has recently accelerated with a clear trend of bigger and bigger revenue declines, based on the U.S. Census Bureau announcement Wednesday that newspaper revenue between 2007 and 2008 dropped by 8.3 percent. That number follows lesser but increasing declines over the previous two years, suggesting a disastrous income curve.

"Newspaper publishers experienced a single-year decline in total revenue of 8.3 percent -- from $47.9 billion in 2007 to $43.9 billion in 2008," said the Census Bureau.

The losses were caused primarily by declines in advertising revenue, down from $30.9 billion in 2007 to $27.8 billion in 2008. Newspaper subscriptions remained fairly steady, bringing in $8.3 billion in 2007 to $8.2 billion in 2008.

"When we measure information as a commodity, it allows us to track trends," said Mark Wallace, head of the statistic division for the bureau.

The trend for newspapers is obviously bad and the same goes for radio. Radio stations saw a 6.7 percent decline in revenues in 2008 -- from $13.6 billion to $12.7 billion.

On the up side, cable and satellite television systems increased revenues, climbing from $40.9 billion in 2007 to $45.1 billion in 2008, representing 10.1 percent increase.

"Over the same period, Internet publishing and broadcasting revenues grew 19.8 percent from $16.7 billion to $20 billion, spurred in part by the increase in revenue from one of its sources, publishing and broadcasting of Internet content, which increased 19.6 percent -- from $8.7 billion in 2007 to $10.4 billion in 2008," said the Census Bureau.

Italians have different family structure. Grandparents live in the same household or something.

Finland has effective government stydy grant system so kids can move out early

It is not really that, it is that housing in Italy is outrageously expensive, they can't afford to move out until they are established adults.
