the 7th vagueness of the barometer of the diversity of the CSA: encouraging results

Official statement of the Thursday, January 23, 2014

The Council set up since 2009 a barometer of diversity. This one makes it possible to measure the way in which the diversity of the French company in the programs of the TV channels is represented. 

The results of vagueness 2013 are encouraging. As regards socioprofessional categories (CSP), a continuous improvement of the representation of the employees and blue-collar workers (CSP-) are proven. These CSP, as well as the inactive ones, which accounted for only 19% of the people raised in the programs in 2011, account for 29% in 2013.

Concerning the representation of the perceived origins, if the results of vagueness 2012 had marked a retreat, results 2013 are more encouraging with 16% people representative of the diversity of the origins (for memory: 15% in 2011 and 14% in 2012). The action of the Council privileges the duration and constant pedagogy near the chains so that they give way in all their types of programs to the diversity of the perceived origins. 

As regards handicap, the figures of 2013 do not show unfortunately improvement with 0,4% of the raised people, whose handicap visible or is expressed with the antenna. The Council will not fail to continue its actions in order to promote the representation of the people handicapped with the antenna. 

The realization of this barometer is entrusted, since 2012, in TNS Sofres.
