List of newspapers by circulation

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

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 2013 and previous years. Some figures are disputed; the numbers for Japanese newspapers have been subjected to claims of "oshigami" or exaggeration by over-supplying papers to businesses.[5] Free newspapers are not included in the list.
