Summary

Description
English: US newspaper advertising revenue, corrected for inflation
Date
Source Own work
Graph and source program are own work by uploader. Consumer Price Index numerical data from the website of the United States Department of Labor. U.S. newspaper advertising revenue data shown here was published on the website of the Newspaper Association of America, but was withdrawn in 2014. Last available NAA data (2003-2014) was also shown graphed on the website of Statista, but the accompanying text gave an "estimated" figure of \$14.87b for 2015. A similar graph to this appeared previously on the "Carpe Diem" blog of Mark J. Perry.
