Abstract

Based on the 2014 CFPS data and regional macro data, this paper discusses the ways and mechanisms of family characteristics and regional differences affecting information consumption by using hierarchical linear model. The results show that 8% of the differences in household information expenditure are caused by regional differences. Education level, urban and rural location and per capita income have significant positive effects on information consumption, and the influence of family size on information consumption is negative. Regional characteristics can not only directly affect the level of information consumption, but also can adjust the residents' information consumption tendency through cross level interaction effects. Therefore, in different areas, families with the same characteristics, the level of information consumption is not the same. According to this result, this article finally provides the corresponding policy suggestion for promoting the information consumption level and expanding the effective demand.
