New Statesman reaching more readers than ever

The NS has once again recorded an increase in sales.

By New Statesman

Audited magazine circulation figures are out today and the New Statesman has once again recorded an increase in sales at a time of crisis for many media groups. The circulation of the magazine (once digital, App and Kindle edition sales are included) is now in excess of 30,000 for the first time since the late 1970s. In addition, web traffic continues to surge. In January, more than 2.5 million unique users visited, and our sister sites and recorded record traffic.

The New Statesman magazine’s circulation peaked in the 1960s and then went into steep decline in the 1970s and 1980s. By the mid-1990s, the magazine was close to bankrupt. Today, it is once again in robust health, and reaching more readers across the world than ever before.

“I am delighted by the transformation in the fortunes of this great title,” said New Statesman editor Jason Cowley. “My talented team has achieved something that was not thought possible – we have revived the fortunes of a great print title in the digital age by embracing the digital age. And we continue to innovate, as evidenced by the success of May2015, our election microsite, and Citymetric.”

The New Statesman will launch a new website later in the year.
