Which Report in the Periodical Analyzer Should I Use?

AAM provides the answers to several magazine media planning questions.

AM’s Periodical Analyzer provides a wealth of information sourced from magazines’ publisher’s statement data. There are many different reports and options available to customize your analyses. Which report should you use to find the information you need? Let’s look at several scenarios.

I’m looking at 10 publications, and I need to compare the top-line information (like total paid subscriptions and total single-copy sales) for the last six months.

The Average Paid, Verified and Analyzed Nonpaid Circulation report provides the top-line information that you’re looking for. The final report can be filtered and sorted to fit your needs or downloaded for further analyses.

In the pop-up, change the Condition field to Equal To and type MIDDLE ATLANTIC into the Value field. After clicking OK, the column values should all display New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. To sort a column from highest to lowest distribution, click on the column heading and select the blue down arrow. For more in-depth analysis, click on the Export button to download to Excel.

The report you use depends on the amount of detail you need.
