Who’s in the Crossword?

We know that certain demographics tend to be marginalised in media. One place where this happens that I didn’t have on my radar: crosswords. Highly popular, subtly shaping readers’ views. A fascinating analysis of clues and answers in crosswords from multiple large newspapers: You encounter more men, more old people, more white people than in the general population. Beautifully designed, as you’d expect from The Pudding.
