Monitor readers tend to be mature, successful, and financially comfortable.

Monitor readers support balanced and constructive journalism and see the Monitor as its highest embodiment. They think more highly of companies because they advertise in the Monitor and are more likely to buy from them because of their Monitor advertising.
