The Audit Bureau of Circulations issued its biannual report of newspaper circulation yesterday. The news was generally pretty good: At many papers average Sunday circulation was up and average daily circulation was up or flat. The figures, which allow publishers to roll in digital subscriptions and branded editions, offer the first apples-to-apples comparison of newspaper circulation figures since the ABC changed its reporting rules in September 2010. The ABC offered charts from the Top 25 newspapers in the United States; this roundup collects examples of how the numbers played around the country. || Related: Several big circulation gainers charge for online access, almost none of the big losers do | Paper-by-paper circulation figures (Gannett blog)
