Reference: New Global Resource: IFABC Compiles Newspaper Circulation Data for More than 400 National Newspapers (Free)

Via Media Week

The International Federation of Audit Bureaux of Circulation (IFABC), the association for auditors ABC and BPA around the world, has launched a free online database that provides headline circulation data for newspapers from 34 countries for the first time.


The historic data, which is currently available from 2008 onwards, will be updated on an annual basis. This is the first stage of a plan that will add local newspapers’ and magazines’ circulation data over the next year.


Previously, the only international newspaper resource has been compiled by the World Association of Newspapers in an annual database and publication World Press Trends, sold to individuals for €500.
