LinkedIn: Newspapers are nation's fastest-shrinking industry

LinkedIn Blog | Business Insider
LinkedIn analyzed five years' worth of Council of Economic Advisors data to calculate the rate of job growth or decline in various industries. Newspapers had the fastest rate of contraction over that period: -28.4 percent. "Internet," a rather broad category, grew 24.6 percent, and online publishing grew 24.3 percent. Data about online publications that write a lot about newspapers does not seem to have broken out.
