How to Find and Create Reports using Historical Data

View data over time for trending insights.


AAM newspaper and periodical clients release new data quarterly and biannually, respectively. While media buyers eagerly await the latest data to plan their media buys, historical data allows for viewing circulation trends over time. In most instances, the Media Intelligence Center stores 10 years of historical data for currently audited AAM clients. Here’s where to find it:

Historical quarterly reports are accessible via the Previous Quarterly Data Reports drop-down menu.
