Audience Measurement Services of Canada’s Radio and Television Industries – Meter Methodology

Canadian Radio Television and Telecommunications Commission | Published July 12, 2016  -  Deadline July 26, 2016
cpvs

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is an administrative tribunal that regulates and supervises broadcasting and telecommunications in Canada. The CRTC seeks to ensure that Canadians have access to a world-class communication system. This overarching objective is supported by three pillars: create, connect and protect. The CRTC supervises and regulates over 2,000 broadcasters, including TV, AM and FM radio and the companies that bring these services to Canadians.

One of the tools the CRTC uses to assess the performance and health of the radio and television industries and of licensees is audience measurement data that provides insight on the tuning performance of Canada’s radio and television stations and services as well as the performance of specific programs broadcast on these stations and services.

Examples of the types of data that are beneficial to the CRTC in its assessment of performance include viewing/tuning time and share of tuning to radio and television stations, demographic information relating to respondents, program-level viewing data for television, as well as information regarding the stations and their respective markets.

Among the most accurate means currently available to collect radio and television audience measurement data is through Portable People Meter (PPM) technology. PPM technology is a pager-sized device that is carried by a representative panel of Canadians that detects inaudible codes that broadcasters embed in the audio portion of their programming using encoders provided by Numeris. Numeris is the only company licensed to use PPM Technology within Canada and is thus the only broadcast measurement and consumer behaviour data supplier in Canada that provides television and radio audience measurement data through the use of PPM technology.

Health Canada (HC) is the federal department responsible for helping the people of Canada maintain and improve their health. HC is committed to improving the lives of Canada's people and to making this country's population among the healthiest in the world as measured by longevity, lifestyle and effective use of the public health care system.

As respected members of the health and scientific communities making an important contribution to the health of Canadians, HC employees are often called upon to share their knowledge and insights with the media. Communicating information successfully to the media requires a well-prepared strategy and an understanding of what the media expect. Understanding how to work with the media has become a critical skill for subject matter experts within government agencies, yet many of these officials have little or no experience with the media.

HC requires the service of professionals to better prepare its officials to effectively work with and provide information to the media. Training is needed to assist subject matter experts, potentially designated as official departmental spokespersons, to understand how the media works, what drives the industry, and how to communicate effectively with print, radio, and broadcast reporters.

Audience Measurement Services of Canada’s Radio and Television Industries – Diary Methodology

Canadian Radio Television and Telecommunications Commission | Published July 12, 2016  -  Deadline July 28, 2016
cpvs

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is an administrative tribunal that regulates and supervises broadcasting and telecommunications in Canada. The CRTC seeks to ensure that Canadians have access to a world-class communication system. This overarching objective is supported by three pillars: create, connect and protect. The CRTC supervises and regulates over 2,000 broadcasters, including TV, AM and FM radio and the companies that bring these services to Canadians.

One of the tools used by the CRTC to assess the performance and health of the radio and television industries and of licensees is audience measurement data that provides insight on the tuning performance of Canada’s radio and television stations and services as well as the performance of specific programs broadcast on these stations and services.

Examples of the types of data that are beneficial to the CRTC in its assessment of performance include viewing and tuning time and share of tuning to radio stations and viewing and television stations, demographic information relating to respondents, program-level viewing data for television, as well as information regarding the stations and their respective markets.

Among the methods commonly used to collect audience measurement information are radio and television diary surveys. Such surveys are done by mail, and panel members receive a diary and are asked to record their radio or television tuning. The data is then compiled and used to produce audience estimates and reports.

The CRTC does not have the internal capability to fulfill its needs for audience measurement data. As such, to fulfill its needs for comprehensive audience measurement data for both radio and television, the CRTC seeks to retain the services of an established independent contractor.
