Investigating a sustainable future for public interest journalism

Australian News Index

The Australian News Index (ANI) is a searchable database of state/territory, national and non-geographic news producers. The ANI supplies the data for the ANMP visualisations and will also incorporate the Australian News Sampling Project data in due course.

In April 2022, the Regional Newspapers Inquiry  pointed to the need for core, longitudinal industry data in its recommendations to government; PIJI’s Australian News Index fulfills those needs by assisting communities, researchers and policymakers to better understand the health of Australia’s news-media landscape.
