    • - The 2011 Circulation data report calculates circulation levels based on ABC, CMCA, CCAB or owner-provided data. CMCA and CCAB currently provide averages based on a 12-month period ending December 31st. For those dailies audited by ABC, data from two 6-months Fas Fax reports, ending March 31st and September 30th, has been averaged to provide a 12-month picture. The following two methods of analysis were used: (1) the average number of copies sold per publishing day (traditional method); and (2) the total number of copies sold per week or customer cycle (neo-traditional method).
