Notes: Top paid circulation data for magazines are six-month averages for the period ending June 30, 2005 (compared with the same period in 2004). Source: Audit Bureau of Circulations, unless marked * which are from BPA Worldwide. North American circulation only. Both companies audit non-paid circulation, not shown. Two newspaper-distributed magazines are omitted: American Profile, audited by BPA, had average paid circulation of 6,897,076 for the period ending June 30, and Parade, audited by ABC, had average paid circulation of 32,665,789 for the period ending Sept. 30, 2004. Other newspaper-distributed magazines, usually delivered with weekend editions, are accounted for in the most recent ranking of newspaper circulation (AA, May 9).
