  • Newspaper Readership Comparisons

    Apr 11, 2011
    In today’s advertising world, buzz words are constantly thrown around without much thought as to what they really mean. We analyze the effectiveness of a campaign using terms like impressions, circulation, unique users, viewership, and many more. As one could imagine, this becomes quite the convoluted mess when trying to get an apples to apples comparison from one medium to another. For instance, newspapers have recently gone back to talking about their audience in terms of readership rather than circulation numbers. The readership numbers for newspapers offer a better comparison to other media because it shows the total number of people looking at a particular product rather than just the total amount of the product available. Not using readership numbers would be like television counting the number of TV’s that are on a certain show rather than the number of viewers watching each of those TV’s; or radio counting the number of radios that are tuned into a certain station rather than the number of listeners who are hearing that one station.

The study was conducted by Scarborough Research and the Newspaper National Network and measured the readership and circulation data for 25 leading U.S. newspapers. The results show that the number of readers-per-copy of a newspaper has actually been increasing, not decreasing in recent years.
