List of newspapers in Australia by circulation

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

There are several measures of circulation of newspapers. The Australian Bureau of Circulations (ABC) Paid Media Audit Data provides independent verification of paid media distribution in Australia. These are typically divided into Monday-Friday, Saturday/weekend and Sunday for each quarter. In 2017 the Audited Media Association of Australia announced that circulation figures were to be published every six months.[citation needed]

Measures are also divided by electronic and print versions.

For the quarterly reporting period of the ABC data, from March to June 2016, Fairfax made the decision to remove its digital circulation numbers because it believes the figures, released by the Audited Media Association of Australia (AMAA), wrongfully suggest subscriptions at The SMH and The Age are falling.


Local/Community newspapers tend to be distributed free of charge to a given community/area. A measure of paid print copies has no meaning in this circumatance. Readership tends to be meaured by the number of copies distributed. Below are the distribution numbers for the quarter ending December 2016.[1]
