Now, Nielsen online ratings for January show volatility in APN's numbers since then and a steady rise for Fairfax, which has once again claimed the top spot by the smallest of margins.

Print readership slide continues, but news brands grow
RalphGoodale.ca

Nielsen and the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) have released 2013's fourth quarter readership and circulation statistics for newspapers and magazines.

Newspaper readership and circulation continue their downward slide, but don't mention the D word

Nielsen’s readership and the ABC’s circulation results do not bode well for the print versions of New Zealand newspapers. Most of the major publications recorded significant drops on both reports, leading to suggestions from some that it might be time to adapt the way statistics are collected so that readership can be measured across all platforms.
