Circulation figures Norwegian newspapers

Circulation figures for Norwegian newspapers are based on data from the Norwegian Media Businesses' Association (MBL) and the Association of Local Newspapers (LLA). The data are supplemented by information collected by media researcher Sigurd Høst, presented annually in the report 'Avisåret', published by Volda University College.

The circulation method - how circulation is measured and reported - has changed several times over the years. The last change, in 2020, entails using new categories. Total circulation stays the same, but print circulation is now counted as sale of printed copies only, excluding combined subscriptions. The same goes for digital circulation, which includes digital subscriptions or electronic copies only. Combined subscriptions are counted as a separate category. In 2014-2019 combined subscriptions were included in both print and digital circulation, resulting in overlapping categories. In the net total all overlap was removed. In the years up to 2014 only circulation including print were reported.

The overview includes paid newspapers only. Print newspapers must be published at least weekly. From 2018 onwards circulation figures are reported twice a year for a six-month period, instead of a whole year, and more sales with discounts are included than before. In the table below data for the last six months every year is used.

You can select circulation by type and newspapers by title for one or several years. Results will normally be sorted alphabetically by newspaper title, but you can choose to get results sorted by size of circulation - for one year at a time only.

Notes:

Newspapers without circulation figures for any of the years you have selected will not be included in the result table.

Circulation data for newspapers VG and Dagbladet includes subscriptions to premium editions online when available. VG's total circulation and digital circulation includes premium subscriptions from 2017 onwards. Dagbladet's premium subscriptions are included from 2015 onwards.

A new way of calculating circulation were introduced in 2020. Total circulation stays the same, but print circulation is counted as sale of printed copies only, excluding combined subscriptions. The same goes for digital circulation, which includes digital subscriptions or sale of electronic copies only. Combined subscriptions are counted as a separate category. In 2014-2019 combined subscriptions were included in both print and digital circulation.

2018 onwards the circulation method is changed, as circulation numbers are reported twice a year based on six-month periods instead of a whole year, and more sales with discounts are included than before. Medianorway will be using circulation figures for the last six months every year.

Print circulation figures before and after 2014 are not fully comparable, as print circulation until 2014 included a small share (1-2 per cent) of electronic newspaper editions. Electronic editions are from 2014 on included in digital circulation only.

Important:
When using data from this database please refer to medianorway as well as the original source of the statistics.
