About the 2023 Index

The INN Index is the most comprehensive study of the state of nonprofit news.

Since 2018, the Institute for Nonprofit News has conducted this annual Index survey of its member news organizations. INN member news organizations act as a research consortium by sharing their business and editorial statistics to help each other benchmark their own development. This practice also helps INN and experts in the field evaluate and better understand new media business models, staffing needs and editorial focus of newsrooms as they form.

INN’s 2023 Index Snapshot Report was published on May 23, 2023. Previous Index reports are archived.
