  1. Business/Economy/Agriculture/Development
  2. Politics/Governance
  3. Human Rights/Courts/Police/Crime
  4. Sports/Entertainment
  5. Foreign Content
  6. Religion
  7. Health
  8. Education.

The data is collected by analysing news bulletins and programmes from concerned stations.  The report also contains information on the accessibility of broadcasters in terms of  their availability on particular allocated frequencies.
