number of characters need to know to read a newspaper

Posted by adam_p_lax October 31, 2012 in the Group I Have a Question.

Hey all,


I was wondering if anyone knew how many characters/words, on average, one would need to know to competently read a Chinese newspaper. It's something I was curious about and I've heard a wide range of answers from 1000 to 2000 characters.
