Media planners and advertisers generally target urban Canadians with their newspaper buys and overlook an opportunity: rural Canadians. Presented are results from a study undertaken by Newspapers Canada to understand the differences between rural and urban markets. Rural markets were defined as those with populations of 10,000 and under. Urban markets were those with populations of over 100,000.
