This is a list of the daily newspapers in the world by average circulation. Figures are compiled by the International Federation of Audit Bureaux of Circulations[1] and World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers.[2][3][4] Figures represent each paper's average circulation in 2011 and previous. Some figures are disputed; the numbers of the Japanese newspapers have been subjected to claims of "Oshigami" or circulation exaggeration.[5] Free newspapers are not included in this list.
