Who Owns the World's Media?

This chapter examines and summarizes country data across all of the 30 nations surveyed in this study, chosen for their importance in the media world, their GDP, and population size. Four concentration indices form the basis for country-by-country comparisons: the C4 and C1 indices, Herfindahl-Hirschman Index, Noam media concentration index, and power index. Each index is explained in its respective section, which details the following: what the index is; what the index represents; what the data show; the world averages of the index; the top and bottom countries relative to that world average; and the United States’ concentration numbers, as the largest of media markets. Also analyzed and compared are the number of media voices, the number of voices per capita, cross-ownership, ownership shares by foreign companies and public ownership.

Keywords:   media market, media industry, media ownership, country data, concentration index, media voices, foreign ownership, public ownership
