List of newspapers by circulation
This is a list of paid daily newspapers in the world by average circulation. Worldwide newspaper circulation figures are compiled by the International Federation of Audit Bureaux of Circulations and World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers. This list shows the latest figures that are publicly available through either organisation.
Some figures are disputed; the numbers for Japanese newspapers have been subjected to claims of "oshigami" or exaggeration by over-supplying papers to businesses. Free newspapers are not included in the list.
