Abstract
Previous research suggests that mediated information seeking may be especially strong during crises
and other times of uncertainty, however, little is known about sex differences in both information seeking and
responses under these conditions. The current study explores these differences using data collected from
Minneapolis residents following the I-35W bridge collapse.
