When it came to automotive magazines and this website, what were the year-over-year growth rates for specific titles? And who controlled the market with the largest print volumes?

After some research, the annual magazine publishing data from NW Ayer and Sons (later Gale Research) proved useful. Based in Philadelphia, Ayer had been around since the 1860s. It provided distribution volumes submitted by newspapers, trade, and general interest magazine publishers.

These sources provide what is called net paid circulation numbers in their annual tally. It is six months of printed magazine volumes after deducting left-over, unsold, returned, sample, exchange or advertiser copies. The average monthly net paid circulation numbers below were extracted from both Ayer and Gale publications then rank-ordered high-to-low on monthly print volume for each years from 1949 through 1990 (see below).

Net paid circulation numbers are sourced from audited and unaudited publisher results and from Post Office data. Unaudited publisher submittals are prone to error or exaggeration. Some publishers used "plug" numbers or estimates when they did not have actual data. This is obvious when the same net paid circulation number is submitted over multiple years.

Not all publishers submitted data for every year. Only those titles with non-zero print data are included. Further, the data are for magazines published monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly or annually.

There was a significant uptick in both printed circulation figures and the number of firms producing automotive magazines in the late 1980s. This is due to several factors including: (1) a "roaring" United States economy; (2) the introduction of desktop publishing which allowed very small publishers to produce specialty titles; and (3) a change in circulation reporting caused by the switch from N.W. Ayer to Gale Research/Cengage Learning in 1987 such that smaller publications were better represented in the annual tally.
