Hoosiers Actually Read Public Notices

BES_095Residents of Indiana may not know the origin of “hoosiers” but they do know about their public notice advertisements.

A Hoosier State Press Association report in August 2014 of Hoosier Attitudes on Public Notice, Newspaper Readership and Election Information Systems says that more than 80% of the 1,000 respondents polled could recall the contents of a legal ad they remembered reading.

More than 60% of those polled said they thought government should be required to public legal notices, even though it costs taxpayers dollars each year.

The polling included both telephone and online respondents, and was conducted by American Opinion Research, Princeton, NJ, during July 2014.
