AAM's semiannual periodical Snapshot report includes top-line print and digital circulation data for all consumer magazine members for the first half of 2014. Below are some highlights from the report. U.S. stats are available in this post.

Key Stats

Of the 56 titles that reported comparable data, overall paid and verified circulation was down 4.8 percent for the first half of 2014 compared with the first half of 2013. Single-copy sales increased 3 percent, paid subscriptions were down 10.1 percent. Wholesaler and distributor Benjamin News closed in March. For some magazines this may have impacted the six-month averages for single-copy sales reported in today's Snapshot report.

Approximately 86 percent of AAM's Canadian magazines—48 titles—reported digital replica editions for this period. These editions totaled to approximately 255,764, or 3 percent of total paid, verified and analyzed nonpaid circulation. Digital editions for this period have nearly tripled from the 72,587 average copies reported in the June 2013 period.

The full Snapshot report containing data on more than 500 Canadian and U.S. consumer magazines is available in AAM’s Media Intelligence Center. AAM members should use their user name and password to access the report. More information about Snapshot is available here.
