NRS 2019 underwent a complete overhaul to better match the changes in consumers’ reading and media consumption habits. The most important new feature is that digital reading is now considered to be as valuable as print media consumption in all reading-related areas.

With the updates connected to information collection, target groups, methods and data generation now in place, it is important to note that none of the NRS 2019 figures can be compared to the NRS figures from previous years. This means that all prior trends have ended and new ones will be charted based on future NRS results.

A magazine’s number of readers, i.e. the reader estimate, indicates how many thousands of readers an average issue of a print magazine has. The overall coverage figure is the number of readers of a magazine’s average print issue plus the net number of readers of the magazine’s different digital issues over an average week.
