What is CMUST?
IAB Canada’s Canadian Media Usage Trends Study (CMUST)
is the only Canadian study crossing all major media and combining each channel’s research audience currency of record, five currencies in all. The study documents consumers changing media consumption across all media as digital technologies impact the lives of Canadians.
Since its inception in 2001, CMUST has tracked the increasing reach and time-spent (number of minutes) as more Canadians have shifted their news, entertainment, banking and other activities to the digital space.
Originally the CMUST study was designed to track the Internet medium through its infancy and provide a reach and time spent context relative to the other legacy media. But now, the study focuses on the how new devices and new types of content are triggering ways consumers devote ever growing time counts with the Internet.
Some brand new topics addressed in his year’s CMUST include;
- Simultaneous usage of TV and the Internet
- Car Connectivity; the early stages
- New multi-platform data from comScore to help describe consumer time with the Internet medium
