Word Count Trends in Health Articles [Data Study]

After analyzing 2 million+ bylined articles in Health via our VoiceGraph index, we found a continuing trend toward longer articles. In the period 2014-2019, the percentage of all long-form articles (those over 1500 words) had the highest rate of growth, while the shortest articles (those 300-600 words) had the most significant decline. And the shift has been most pronounced since 2018.

When we looked at word count data across other major industries, we found that Health had the lowest percentage of shortest articles (300-600 words) and the highest percentage of medium length articles (601-1200 words).
