Requirements | Reporting | Guidance


 Requirements 

 1. Publishers may optionally report a Geographical Analysis

  1. You may report a Geographical Analysis as an optional table added to the Standard Certificate.

 2. The circulation is analysed into standardised geographical locations  

  1. The Geographical Analysis is a census of the analysed data (i.e. not sample based and no extrapolation).

  2. You may select the level of detail to which you analyse copies, with the ability to mix different levels from the following:

    1. World Region. For example: Europe, North America, Asia

    2. Country. For example: United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany

    3. UK Region. For example: East Anglia, East Midlands

    4. UK Counties. For example: Cambridgeshire, Dorset

    5. Details of the World Regions, Countries and Counties that can be analysed are available on the ABC website.

  3. You may analyse copies as ‘Other’, which will have a distinct definition (I.e. ‘none of the above’), and which you must be able to prove the categorisation. For example: United Kingdom 3,879 broken out into London 3,100 and Other 779 (being UK but not London).

  4. If you cannot prove a copy’s categorisation or choose not to analyse it in a geographical category then it will be reported as ‘Not analysed’.
