Notes: Top paid circulation data for magazines are six-month averages for the period ending December 31, 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. Newspaper-distributed magazines omitted include: American Profile, audited by BPA, had average paid circulation of 7,240,540 for the period ending December 31, and Parade, audited by ABC, had average paid circulation of 22,189,082 for the period ending September 30, 2005. Other newspaper-distributed magazines, usually delivered with weekend editions, are accounted for in the most recent ranking of newspaper circulation.
